Some of the incidents associated with pressure equipment are explained by external loading that was not considered at the design stage. In this article, our mechanical engineer and specialist in pressure installations, Hugo Julien, lists nine crucial aspects to consider in terms of external loadings when designing pressure equipment.
Let’s go back to basics: what do forensic engineers really do? The job is split into two parts. First, these specialized engineers analyze structural, mechanical, and other engineering failures: What was the problem? Why did it happen? Then, they develop methods to resolve them: what is the best course of action for repair or is there any avenue for recovery?

Heavy vehicles are part of our daily lives. Although many people are familiar with the tractor trailer, which we see in abundance on our roads, a multitude of other heavy vehicles exist, in all forms and for very distinct applications. They serve not only to transport material, but also to transform our environment by maneuvering, extracting and modifying natural resources, among other things.
Any pressurized tank or piping system such as your domestic hot water tank, your compressed air tank in your garage or a pressurized installation in a factory has a generally small, but very essential part: an overpressure protection device. The role of this device is to release excess pressure in order to avoid an explosion. Our engineer, Hugo Julien, who specializes in the interpretation and application of codes associated with stationary equipment of all kinds, answers a few questions.
If Aesop illustrated the handling of litigation files ... he would try to make people understand that it is important to begin immediately. In the famous fable the tortoise and the hare, our friend the tortoise, through regular and tireless work, won a race which seemed unattainable at the start!
