Detailed structural analysis :
Potential to extend or confirm the use of existing equipment and facilities by detailed analysis.
Potential to remove design conservatism by component level engineering.
Fully exploit the material properties and load paths within the components.
Ability to benchmark predicted model behaviour against real-life test results prior to field use encourages confidence in the prediction of the reliability of components analysed.
