The stress profiles of mechanical components designed
at Terracene International are modeled using standard FEA methods.
Stringent quality control and thorough inspection procedures are
applied during the design, fabrication, and test phases of our
products. These design and analysis capabilities are an important
part of the contract services we provide to our customers.
Stress models are used to provide predictions of
the expected loads on mechanical components, but correct location
and application of strain gages is a required step in confirming
the models accuracy. A thorough knowledge regarding the behaviour
of strain signal conditioners, data collection schemes, and data
analysis is also necessary for establishing
a high level of confidence in the results.
Terracene has developed the required
technical knowledge and expertise to provide a full range of
design and analysis
services for strain gauging of mechanical components or systems.
Our extensive experience includes applications in harsh industrial
and extreme temperature environments. We also provide a field
service for applications that require in-situ stress analysis of equipment
that is too large for transport
or is permanently installed.
Our instrument design group is used to integrate stress analysis techniques
with standard or custom electronics packages. Wireless networks, battery
solar powered instrumentation, and remote logging systems are commonly
required by our customers.
