PDL Publications: Case Study Examples

Our case study examples are available to all users.

Nautilus Rotary Test Rig

Nautilus Rotary Test RigPDL engineers provided computational fluid dynamics (CFD) consultancy support to the project through the development of validated models using the ANSYS CFX package complete with a customised graphical user interface (GUI) and a sub-modelling approach

Paper Handling and Media Transportation: ATM 3

Paper Handling and Media Transportation: ATM 3PDL engineers carried out a design and analysis project to develop a compact keypad cover mechanism for a 'drive-up' ATM. The keypad cover was required to conceal a pin code keypad, which under normal use would be superseded by a touch screen. When required, the keypad cover should quickly and reliably retract.

Fatigue analysis of subsea mining equipment

Fatigue analysis of subsea mining equipmentPDL supported a world leading manufacturer of remotely operated vehicles (ROV) used in subsea environments. The project involved the high cycle fatigue assessment of subsea mining equipment to be used in the mining of rich mineral deposits in the oceans of South East Asia. In total the chassis' of 3 different machines, each with a different function and associated set of loads were assessed. All 3 chassis' were fabricated structures weighing in excess of 40Te. The assessment was carried out in accordance with the provisions of DNV-RP-C203.
