Engineering Simulation & Analysis


DOCAN has a wide range of expertise in engineering analysis and simulation, predominantly gained working within highly regulated industries on safety-critical designs following engineering codes and standards.

We have experience working within the petrochemical, offshore, nuclear and aerospace industries, on applications involving complex phenomena such as creep damage, structural instability, fracture mechanics, dynamic response, multi-phase and multi-species flow, slug flow in pipes, erosion, combustion and chemical reactions.



DOCAN has advanced experience in performing thorough analysis of fluids and thermodynamic behaviour, with a deep understanding of addressing these specific challenges.


Our simulation & analysis expertise & software

By simulating reality with analysis through various different advanced methods, DOCAN can solve the most complex engineering problems. We have access to a comprehensive range of software and the ability to simulate a huge variety of real-world structures, flows and processes: from simple pipe stress or static finite element solutions to highly non-linear analyses involving fluid-structure interactions.

Starting from first principles and working up, we use our experience and software to give you quality-assured and cost-effective answers to your engineering problems. Whether your current in-house team lacks the skills involved in engineering simulation or you simply don’t have the resources, that’s where we can help.


What our clients have to say

"We recently trialled and bought some Flownex software through DOCAN. Our experience of working with DOCAN as a distribution partner of Flownex has been excellent. They are extremely approachable and knowledgeable. All our technical questions have been answered quickly and in detail. The level of customer support provided is really impressive and without hesitation we would recommend DOCAN."
James Linfield
Director, Navier Flow Consultants
"We have been working on a very challenging design, involving high speed impact, for a number of years now. I wish we had engaged with DOCAN from the start as it would have saved us time and money. Their engineering knowledge and FEA software has proved to be a huge asset to the project. I can now see that if I had worked with this company in the past I would have released products much faster."
