Construction Equipment Mechanical Design Services
Mechanical Design, FEA, CAD
DOCAN have been supporting Webster Technologies in the design and development of their ROCKHIT and ROCKWHEEL equipment.
The DOCAN solution
We have employed a range of different services to support various aspects of this project, which have included:
- Optioneering of design concepts
- Hand calculation for sizing of components, stress calculation, hertzian stress calcs., bearing selection, etc.
- Conducting FEA using the ABAQUS/CAE FEA package, including implicit and explicit methods with linear elastic and hyper-elastic materials, to model the equipment during use and identify load cases to be used as a basis for design.

Finite Element Analysis
Our services range from static finite element solutions to highly non-linear analyses involving fluid-structure interactions.
