Thermal and Pipe Stress Analysis
Another variable in the design of pipe support, seismic bracing, or hangar design is what is/will be inside the pipe, and how the temperature affects the pipe material. Much pipe stress analysis, determined by the force of the liquid running through it, needs to have thermal stress factored to give the bracing and anchorage the flexibility the pipe needs as it expands and contracts. This is a very speciality engineering item and Zenith is one of the few firms who are experts in this field.
Zenith's principal has developed programs and systems that aid in the efficiency and overall turnaround times for this speciality engineering field and has assisted projects in life science, healthcare, pharmaceutical manufacturing, and aerospace. It's always good to have an independent engineer on your side during this scope.
