What to Look for When Analyzing Factory Cranes

Manufacturers and factories are the single most important part of any economy. They’re the engine that keeps people employed, and which allows people to continue creating new products. Factories are responsible for turning people’s dreams into realities,...

Outsourced Mechanical Engineering Team

Mechanical engineering projects come in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes you want to have full-time engineers for long-term continuous projects. Other times, projects may only be as needed for manufacturing equipment, factory setups, new product design or an...
Stress Strain Equations in FEA

Stress Strain Equations in FEA

Understanding accurate stress strain equations doesn’t have to be complicated. Engineers from different industries work to improve finite element analysis (FEA) every day. Their goal is to ensure that products on the market are safe, cost-efficient, and quick to sell....
FEA Analysis of Factory Cranes and Crane Design

FEA Analysis of Factory Cranes and Crane Design

As crane design becomes more natural it becomes more economical. Structures need to be optimized for any large-scale construction machine. Most crane structural optimization technology has taken decades to reach this point. You can learn so much about calculating...

Importance of Anchor Bolt Analysis

Here at Meadows Analysis and Design, we use a specialized engineering tool to help us calculate where an anchor bolt should be positioned and what types of stresses are on it. We can use this tool, among others, to analyze pre-existing equipment or the base of...
