Red Wolf Associates provides Finite Element Analysis (FEA) and Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) calculations for the nuclear power industry under its 10 CFR 50 Appendix B quality assurance program. Our capabilities include:

  • Linear and non-linear static and dynamic structural stress FEA
    • Isotropic materials
    • Anisotropic materials
    • Benchmarking of material properties to test data
  • Transient and steady-state thermal stress FEA
    • Conduction
    • Convection
    • Radiation
  • Steady and transient flow CFD
  • Laminar and turbulent flow CFD
  • Incompressible and compressible flow CFD
  • Heat and mass transfer CFD
    • Conduction
    • Convection
    • Radiation

Red Wolf Associates can create a Computer Aided Design (CAD) model from your drawings and specifications to generate the necessary mesh for the analysis.  If a model is already available, we can generate the mesh from the following 3D CAD packages:

  • Creo Element/Pro / Pro/ENGINEER
  • AutoCAD
  • SolidWorks
  • Other IGES or STEP compatible packages
