Overview of Structure and Fluid Analysis, Modeling, and Civil Engineering

Writing standards and providing clients excellence in structural mechanics. Writing standards and providing clients excellence in structural mechanics.

Geosyntec provides specialized engineering and design services to clients worldwide. Much of the firm's design expertise focuses on structural systems exposed to high demand loading conditions, such as earthquakes, extreme winds, hurricanes, fire, and blast.

We specialize in the design of strengthening schemes and retrofits for industrial facilities, buildings, refinery structures, offshore platforms, and water and petrochemical storage tanks.

We apply advanced analytical methods, combined with practical design experience, to create efficient structural solutions for a wide range of industries:

  • Upstream Oil and Gas
  • Downstream Oil and Gas
  • Public water and Power Utilities
  • Renewable and Clean Energy
  • Military
  • Aerospace

Geosyntec's licensed or chartered engineers routinely contribute to the development of code and criteria documents, and serve on various code-forming committees, such as the International Standards Organization, American Society of Civil Engineers, American Petroleum Institute, American Concrete Institute, and the British Standards Institute.

Fluid Mechanics

Geosyntec has extensive knowledge of fluid mechanics and heat transfer processes, which we regularly apply to engineering problems across different industry sectors.

Many engineers within Geosyntec have studied detailed aspects of fluid flow and heat transfer phenomenon to Ph.D. level, and have published in journals and conferences worldwide. This fundamental knowledge of fluid dynamics, hydraulics and reacting flows is supplemented by the use of modern analysis tools, including computational fluid dynamics (CFD), finite element analysis (FEA) and Fluid Network Modelling, using a range of commercial and internally developed tools.

We have expertise with ANSYS-CFX, ANSYS-Fluent, Flowmaster, Open-FOAM, Code-Saturne, FLACS, KFX, and many other fluid modelling tools. We have expertise in certain specialist areas, which have resulted in the development of new techniques, bespoke software tools and modifications to commercial software to address complex coupled systems. These specialist areas include conjugate heat transfer (combined conduction and convection) for systems such as nuclear transport flasks, aircraft wing anti-icing, and boiler heat exchangers, where these systems can also include boiling and condensing phase change heat and mass transfer.
