About Us

Our Services

Our key expertise is design, verification and lifecycle management. 

This covers R&D, FEED, detailed engineering, product development, manufacturing support, maintenance management, operational support, integrity management and FFS and deconstruction management - the full lifecycle.

Our service can include the full lifecycle (i.e. cradle to grave) or single scopes such as design, stress check or simply technical authoring and document control.

We use the latest CAE applications for CAD, CFD and FEA.

Areas we help clients include; 

Design - including 3D parts, assembly and 2D manufacturing drawings from concept and FEED to first article and prototype and to batch manufacture including document control, document management, technical authoring and O&M manuals. 

3D scanning to Reverse Engineering.

Design substantiation of equipment to code or OEM standards (BSI, ASME, API, DNV, ABS, ESDU, AUK, NASA, GKN, Eurocode, etc.) 

Analysis - all types, including FSI, coupled thermo-mechanical, coupled fluid-mechanical, linear and non-linear, steady state, transient, harmonic, response spectrum, stress, heat transfer and fluids.

We use SOLIDWORKS for our design work, reverse engineering and rapid prototyping but are flexible to use other systems such as Solid Edge, Inventor, Onshape and others as required.

Industries we have worked in:

  • Aerospace and satellite systems
  • Offshore - including Drilling and Production Rig Engineering, BOP's, RCD's, Subsea Engineering, Downhole tools, Pipelines
  • Naval Architecture - including vessel modification, upgrades and justification
  • Electronics and High Tech
  • Nuclear - Civil and Military
  • Refining and Chemicals - including piping, vessels, tanks and structures, with level 3 FFS
  • High and Ultra high pressure equipment design and verification
  • Automotive
  • Manufacturing - product and process design
  • Forensic and failure investigation
  • General Engineering

About Us

Docan Ltd was formed in 2015. The DOCAN ethos is to have a can do attitude, this, with experience, know how and technology means anything can be achieved. 

We are authorised distributors of ADINA - a high end finite element code for solving multi physics problems - stress, thermal, fluids and EM. We use this for our design analysis, verification and consulting services. We also sell and support ADINA, and train engineers and scientists in the use of ADINA.

We are based in Cheshire - the United Kingdom and service customers nationally and internationally. In addition to the UK we have experience of working in North America and Asia.

For design, analysis, lifecycle, or general consulting, please get in touch with the team.
