HINE calculates the mechanical strength of piping systems, supports and secondary structures

Through process engineering, the engineers at HINE can produce fundamentally efficient designs of a production plant.  They also ensure its mechanical integrity within the detailed design.


With the help of numerical simulation tools, which are mostly based on the Finite Element Method (FEM), different load cases are considered even in complex construction projects. In addition to the loads imposed by the process, such as pressure and temperature within the system, environmental influences such as weather and earthquakes are also considered.


The loads occurring on the pipelines, brackets and the secondary structure are determined. The engineers at HINE specify the system components based on these results and thus ensure the protection of people, the environment and capital goods even under extreme but possible load scenarios.
