Design, Analysis and Testing

Design

Westmoor has a dedicated in-house design capability using a range of software packages capable of creating 2D and 3D computer aided designs. Our experienced design team is able to rapidly generate concept designs and develop these into working solutions to suit individual client requirements across a wide range of applications including onshore and offshore programmes.

Westmoor implements an on-going Research and Development programme and works closely with the leading classification societies including Lloyd’s Register, American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Det Norsk Veritas (DNV). Westmoor has established working relationships with the country’s leading fire testing establishments.

 

Analyses

Westmoor undertakes detailed analysis to validate new concepts and products. This activity is supported by Westmoor’s close links with local universities who provide their expertise and software. Analysis helps optimise product design, performance and cost.

Westmoor conducts in-depth analysis such as:

 

  • Finite element
  • Process modelling
  • Advanced stress
  • Fatigue and vibration
  • Thermodynamic

 

Testing

Westmoor operates a range of verification techniques including:

 

  • Hydrostatic pressure testing
  • Fire testing
  • Weathertight, spraytight testing
  • Gastight and pneumatic testing

 

Westmoor’s in-house testing facilities perform watertight, weathertight and gastight tests by subjecting products to high pressures from either compressed air or water. Westmoor also has a thermodynamic testing facility to provide information and data on material and product performance in fire situations.
