Engineering Design
and Assessment


The core services that we provide include CAE involving systems, process, structural mechanics, thermo-fluids, engineering design, CAD, drafting, FEA & CFD, classical analysis, and both design code and fitness for service assessments. 


Concept & Prototype

You might have an idea but not necessarily the high level engineering resource to develop the idea to a prototype – this is where DOCAN can help. We work with clients across a range of industries providing services from concepting to prototype generation through to assessment of prototype designs and creation of manufacturing drawings. We can facilitate manufacture of parts with the aid of our manufacturing partners, both for traditional methods of manufacture, such as machining and fabrication, and for Additive Manufacturing (AM), which is particularly useful for rapid prototyping.

We can help you present concept material for funding applications, produce engineering calculations to verify your concept and work for you to turn your idea into a feasible design with drawings for you to conduct prototype testing.


Project Management

We work with our clients to ensure that projects are run in a controlled environment and following methodologies (i.e. PRINCEII, PMP, etc.), to deliver on time, on budget, and using controlled resources. This allows our clients to put their own high level engineering resource where it is needed and be confident that their projects are running smoothly. 


Designing from
first principles

DOCAN have design expertise to assist with design concepting, optioneering, FEED, detailed design, machining, fabrication and more.  We can then facilitate creation of construction drawing, O&M manuals and any product documentation which may be required.

We regularly work to international design codes such as ASME, BSI, API, DNV, etc. to deliver code compliant designs.

Design with Simulation

One of our key differentiators to our competitors is how we use design and analysis to offer a better engineered solution, being stronger, lighter, cheaper, or whatever the client requires. Our expertise can assist you in solving problems in the fields of structures, fluid dynamics, thermo-fluids, process, and chemical engineering.

Typical applications we have worked on cover designing to increase available margins against design code requirements, modifying client designs to pass design code requirements, determining Cv curves for valves, determining loading due to pipe slug flow and designing suitable pipe supports among many more.
