Structural Analysis Helps Predict Vibration for Pumping Platforms - Case Study by Mechanical Solutions Inc. - Case Study

Mechanical Solutions, Inc. (MSI) is a leading mechanical engineering firm that performs consulting and R&D, along with design, analysis and testing services for a diverse range of project types throughout the world. After Hurricane Katrina, one of the costliest and deadliest hurricanes in the United States, a design and build contract to increase the capacity of a pumping station in flood-prone New Orleans resulted in a subcontract award to MSI. MSI was responsible for evaluating vibration responses of the platform during operation of high-power mechanical equipment.
