Testing & Risk Assessment
How do you know equipment will perform as expected in the field? Battelle provides comprehensive risk assessment and testing services to help you quantify risks, understand product performance parameters, estimate useful remaining life and make effective asset management decisions.
Battelle risk assessments can protect valuable assets, mitigate and resolve risk, and create more reliable and productive operations.
Looking for objective data for risk reduction?
Battelle’s Risk Assessment & Testing services are rooted in a multi-disciplinary science and engineering approach than includes statistical analysis, chemistry, biology, engineering processes and more to address critical challenges faced by the energy industry.
Our services are all informed by an in-depth understanding of the unique challenges of the energy industry. We have extensive experience working with materials and products in challenging environments.
Our services include:
Our risk assessment services include economic analysis to show the financial impact of effective, science-based decisions on asset monitoring, repair and replacement. We look not only at safety but also at health and environmental risks – including biodiversity risks – related to accidental releases, equipment failures, fires and explosions, construction accidents and many other types of events. By pairing consequence analysis with probability data, we can develop a comprehensive risk matrix that quantifies all potential risks and consequences in economic terms.
We bring together expertise in materials science, engineering and statistical analysis to deliver comprehensive, full-scale testing services and expert, unbiased answers. By pairing traditional experimental testing methods with sophisticated computer modeling techniques, we are able to provide more reliable results. We don’t just crunch numbers – we determine where failures occur and why. More importantly, we can help prevent them.
Our testing services include:
- Drop weight tear test
- Materials testing
- High pressure/high temperature/corrosive environments
- Bend and fatigue testing
- NDE assessment
- Finite element analysis (FEA)
- Computational fluid dynamics (CFD)
- Fracture mechanics
- Fitness for service/remaining life
- Dynamic coupling
Battelle’s Risk Assessment & Testing Services allow the energy industry to target investments in new technologies, improve safety, enhance operations and protect the environment.
