Disciplines & Expertise

We are a team of solutions experts, ready to solve even the most complex problems

Structural Integrity is a global leader in providing innovative engineering solutions. Using a multidisciplinary approach, our experts bring a fresh perspective and proven solutions for condition assessment, component integrity, metallurgical & failure analysis, and regulatory support. Our signature services offer a unique blend of state-of-the-art science and dedicated customer service.  While our origins are in the power generation and energy industries, we’ve expanded our expertise to apply these competencies to a broad range of areas including critical and complex infrastructure, health care, transportation, pipelines, among others.

Field Condition Assessment

Timely and accurate information regarding the condition of critical components is a key element in asset integrity management. A comprehensive understanding of the real cause of aging related degradation or manufacturing deficiencies allows for optimizing short-and long-term repair decisions while balancing the economics, safety and overall life management of the asset. In-field condition assessments using non-destructive techniques allow the inspection of materials, components, or systems in a safe and cost-effective manner in order to provide support for run, repair or replace decisions.

Our field condition assessment service offerings and expertise can be applied across various industries including power generation, energy, chemical, pharmaceutical and many other industrial environments where the understanding of material conditions are critical to overall asset management.

Code & Regulatory Consulting

With decades of consulting experience throughout the power and energy sector and with our staff of multidisciplinary experts, Structural Integrity understands the complexities of today's evolving regulatory landscape and the interaction with core technical and operational considerations of the asset owners. We can help ensure compliance with regulations, benchmark against industry best practices, and make technically and operationally informed recommendations to help our clients implement plans and roadmaps for dealing with key code and regulatory issues.

Training

For over 30 years, companies within the power and energy sectors have turned to Structural Integrity for knowledge and expertise to solve difficult problems, provide integrated solutions, and deliver specialized engineering training. The workforce transformation driven by retirements, hiring gaps and new generations of employees joining our client work forces have the potential to create gaps in knowledge and expertise on the important technical issues. To address these challenges, Structural Integrity offers a broad spectrum of training courses and professional development programs.

Linking Theory and Practice™

We know people learn in different ways and have differing needs, so we link theory and practice to allow our clients to build knowledge so they can solve complex problems, reduce risk, and save money by recognizing issues before they become failures.

  • Our Instructors

    Our instructors are at the forefront of their fields; many are active members or leaders on important Codes and Standards Committees. Their expertise and commitment to our clients have earned Structural Integrity a reputation for world-class service.

  • The Venues

    In addition to the courses and seminars we host at the various Structural Integrity offices, you can choose the location that best suits your needs. We can provide training on-site at your location and during a timeframe that is convenient.

  • Earn PDH’s

    Many of Structural Integrity’s courses have the necessary components to meet the requirements for accredited engineering training or qualify for Professional Engineering continuing education credits.

Taking this course better prepared me for my new position and helped me not only understand the theory but also apply it to real world problems

Failure Analysis & Forensics

When components fail, answers are needed to the question of 'why did it fail', and 'How do we prevent it from happening again?' Structural Integrity's engineering expertise, modeling experience, and deep knowledge of materials, makes it the company that can help answer those questions. Our multidisciplinary approach to failure investigation combined with our condition assessment and Material Science Center have a long history of addressing complicated issues after failures occur - and preventing future failures from happening.

Ultimately, the goals of the failure analysis are to identify the failure mode, the cause of the failure, and the actions required to reduce or eliminate the potential for future or repeat failures. Our technical staff use the results of failure analysis investigations to provide practical recommendations for our clients. The results of such analyses can also be used as a basis for assessing component remaining life, recommending inspection methods or inspection intervals, facilitating repairs to components, and modifying component designs to reduce the likelihood for future failures.

Materials Sciences Laboratory

Structural Integrity’s Material Science Center, located in Austin, Texas, houses a full-service metallurgical testing laboratory with experienced staff that can assist with a wide-range of metallurgical or component issues. Our knowledgeable personnel can also provide on-site materials evaluations, such as metallographic replication, positive material identification (PMI), hardness testing, and failure analysis support.

The need for material property evaluations can result from questions about materials used in new construction, suspected material degradation due to prolonged service, or, as part of an investigation into the cause of a failure event. For any situation involving material property characterization, Structural Integrity has an experienced group of materials specialists, and a full-service metallurgical testing laboratory that can perform any number of chemical, mechanical, or specially-designed tests to address specific circumstances or in-service degradation.
