Case study: Stoomgroep Holland

Finite Element Analysis helps Stoomgroep Holland with regulatory compliance for power boiler construction.

The assignment

Steam locomotives, power boilers, what’s not to like! So when Stoomgroep Holland reached out to us to perform a thermal finite element analysis on their Crampton Model
locomotive we got right on board!

Stoomgroep Holland is a member association for steam driven models and machines. Stoomgroep Holland recently decided to perform their strength calculations according to the rules of ASME Section I: Rules for construction or power boilers. Finite Element Analysis can be used to prove regulatory compliance. In some industries like the Maritime and Offshore this is quite common practice, but not for an association like Stoomgroep Holland. We gladly helped Stoomgroep Holland navigate this new terrain.

Onder Stoom

After our work was done, Stoomgroep Holland decided to share our results with their members in their magazine: Onder Stoom. Below you can download the first part of the series (in Dutch). In this part the conditions and results of the first thermal analysis are explained. The series will continue with the analysis of the deformations and stresses in the boiler. Stoomgroep Holland did an excellent job in making our work accessible and easy to understand and we’re grateful for the opportunity to demonstrate the use and impact of finite element analysis.
