Design Audit

Our expertise in tribology (friction, wear and lubrication) can help establish if the design of your machine, component or system is fit for purpose. We can also audit build procedures and maintenance operations to help you to understand any potential pitfalls that could cause premaure component failure.

Through the design review process, we consider the applied mechanics and thermodynamics of the design and use finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) to support our engineering analysis.

Our design audit process can help you to identify problem areas with the design, durability or service life of a machine and assess operational risk.

To provide this capability we have a multi-disciplinary team consisting of engineers, machine designers, chemists, physicists, and materials scientists.

NCT can help you understand your machine design and tell you:

  • What is right and what is wrong
  • Why it went wrong
  • How to put it right
  • How to prevent it happening again
