Experimental-numerical joint methods are strategic options for promoting the efficiency of energy production, transportation and utilization plants, as well as for developing solutions for mitigating pollutants production.

The virtualization of the processes allows analysing and monitoring wide spectrum of scenarios: preliminary analysis, design, operating life, accidental events.

Industrial plants

Services for performance improvement, efficiency optimization of industrial plants:

  • combustion analysis
  • optimization of burners
  • modeling of phenomena for pollutants formation
  • analysis and optimization of heating exchangers
  • design of blade profile in wind turbines by pursuing the maximum performance
  • assessment of the structural capacity of components subjected to heavy thermic loads.


Studies for supporting analysis, design and assessment of critical components.

  • elastic and plastic collapse
  • plastic instability
  • low-cycle fatigue assessment, strain based
  • stress-based fatigue assessment
  • local/global buckling
  • vibration analysis
  • pipe-to–soil interaction – Oil&Gas
  • off-shore pipeline reeling modelling – Oil&Gas
  • influence of girth weld & weld overlay
  • Strain-Based Design: strain capacity & strain demand

Operating and energetic fluids

Fluid dynamics plays a crucial role in many aspects related to the functioning of plants for energy applications. The evolution of the fluid behaviour during transportation or transformation processes, the loads acted by the fluid on the structural components are typical examples of phenomena involved.

  • modeling of the internal fluid dynamics
  • steady and transient phenomena
  • real fluid modeling
  • multi-phase fluid regimes
  • FSI: fluid-structure interaction
  • transportation and storage of non-conventional gas mixtures, e.g. CO2 based gas mixtures
