AWMA specialise in delivering sustainable and customised solutions for the market where no other, readily available product or solution is available.
The AWMA Design Process includes:
- Safety in Design (SID)
- Design to reduce civil costs and project times
- Design for safe install
- Design for service and maintenance
AWMA’s customised equipment is based on proven design methodologies, however, AWMA believes the potential scope of a solution should not be limited by precedent designs.
The functionality, interface, operation, maintenance and life expectancy of an asset is comprehensively explored with nominated stakeholders. This is most successful during early contractor involvement (ECI). The proposed solution is considered in context with previous projects to leverage from AWMA’s past experiences.
AWMA’s design process includes detailed CAD designs of the infrastructure in the installed configuration, to ensure that all the civil interfacing is accurately captured and verified by stakeholders. Every design element or component is carefully selected and validated by dedicated engineering personnel. Where required, the design is validated in-line with the relevant national, international, or client specific standards and specifications.
AWMA has the in-house capability to do linear elastic multibody Finite Element Analysis (FEA). This tool is extensively used as a design accelerator to optimise the performance and cost of the final product/s. The FEA results is always validated with first principles for accuracy.
AWMA has a long-standing partnership with third party consultancies which provide independent design review or peer support. With these partnerships, AWMA has access to free surface CFD simulation experts with one of Australia’s fastest dedicated CFD super computers. This allows us to accurately analyse equipment for dynamic uplift and down pull forces and check flow separation that could lead to flow induced vibration. AWMA’s in-house team provides comprehensive design reports detailing the engineering validation where third party review is required, such as RPEQ.
Partnering with specialist suppliers and service providers, AWMA brings expertise, innovation and experience to a project ensuring successful delivery. Additionally, an inclusive attitude ensures our team not just listens to, but understands our clients’ requirements for installation, operation, maintenance and budget.
