FEA was also used to help Concorde compare a number of baffle designs used to agitate fluid in their leach tanks. In these tanks, the contained fluid is spun around by a central rotor. As this moving fluid comes into contact with the agitator baffles, a large force is exerted on the baffles themselves as well as the tank wall.
This project involved comparing a number of designs proposed by the client in order to minimise material usage (and cost) while reducing or maintaining original stress levels.
Analysis carried out by EEA revealed that the proposed newer designs were in fact ineffective in reducing costs. Recommendations were made to the client to further refine their design.
More About EEA
Element Engineering Australia was founded in 2010 by Ayrton Sue primarily as a Mechanical Engineering Consultancy specializing in advanced structural analysis.
Today, EEA has Mechanical, Electronic and Software Engineering teams and services
Product Design is Our Speciality
EEA's specialty has become development of products from ground up, with our clients.
With boiler-making background we can undertake design through manufacture of mechanical structures. And with our electronic and software skills, we can build IoT Systems.
With the introduction of specialized electronics engineering and software development teams, EEA can develop mechanical products that are monitored and actuated by smart electronic and software systems.
EEA aim's to build smart mechanical systems to bring the products we work on to the forefront of their domains.
