The office activity was started
in 1981 on the design and verification of boilers
and pressure vessels, according to the Italian
National Inspection Agency(which in those days
was called ANCC, now ISPESL) and by others European
Board, the American Institute ASME and the National
Board. Subsequently, in the years after 1981,
an increase in orders from important companies
was reported, and this led to develop a specific
software on one's own, qualified for pressure
vessel calculation according to reference codes.
In those years, infact, this kind of software
didn't exist yet, or they were rares.
At the same time, rose the need of particular
and detailed controls over parts with different
load cases, where it wasn't possible to apply
the normal expression of calculation. Since 1983
was adopted the finite elements analisys (FEA
analysis) software, which gave the possibility
to investigate the stresses and deformation in
e.g. particular zones of the structure.
The technical evolution of these programs was
very quick, showing always a great affidability,
when based on correct inputs and phisical phenomena
interpretations. The range of activity was quickly
expanded also to other engineering fields, e.g.
industrial veichles, human protesis, paper machines,
food and textile machines etc. At present, the
fem activity mechanical design is supported also
by 3D modeling, so that it is possible to import
exactly goemetries already existing.
