Celebrating Marc and Meadows Analysis

Tomorrow, we are coming up to 17 years that Meadows Analysis and Design has been incorporated. Marc and I took a breather in the picture above in Fort Worth to enjoy each other’s company, talk business and set the direction for Meadows in serving our engineering...

Pressure Vessel Fabrication

We got up front and personal on some of the fabrication of large pressure vessels for one of our engineering clients. They manufacture pressure vessels based on custom designs and requirements and our Meadows Analysis team works through ASME pressure vessel...

Engineering Lifting Weldment Load Capacities

Our engineering team does not necessarily reinvent the wheel, but we innovate at times on rings. It’s not uncommon to increase performance specs or capacity within manufacturing or materials handling environments based on new engineering customer requirements....

Hurricane Irma Versus Walkway Bridges

Hurricane Irma ripped through the St. Martin airport. It’s devastating to see the images that the wind inflicted. We do a lot of engineering work on airport walkways. One of our 100 foot long walkways we worked on over ten years ago survived a direct hit as you...
Adding Design to Our Engineering Safety for Stairs

Adding Design to Our Engineering Safety for Stairs

    In our work at Meadows Analysis, there are times we move beyond heavy machinery and look at stress analysis from a structural and architectural point of view. A recent project included providing fabrication drawings for a residential apartment complex...
Engineering For the Rare But Dangerous Event

Engineering For the Rare But Dangerous Event

In industrial settings we like to assume safety and smooth operations. But when workers are surrounded by complex machinery and assembly lines, that rare, dangerous and undesired event of an explosion has to be accounted for with utmost care. Our team at Meadows...
Lights and Action

Lights and Action

If you have been to a night game, you expect great lighting so you can focus on the game at hand on the field. We may not think much of the lights but these powerful beams are supported on fixtures high up on poles and exposed to extreme wind loading. Meadows Analysis...
Watch Out for Big Cranes

Watch Out for Big Cranes

We often see cranes as part of city skylines and construction jobs. The movement and hoisting capacity of these simple mechanical heavy machinery assemblies has to fit typically within engineering requirements for deflection and a space envelope. Our team at Meadows...
