AMOG can assist designers, manufacturers, operators and regulators in the mining and offshore sectors. We have extensive experience with structural design and analysis, design verification and audits, inspections (including Risk Based Inspection (RBI) techniques), integrity management, system safety engineering, and experience with expert witness engagements for a variety of legal cases involving complex forensic engineering and failure investigations.

AMOG has experience in the mining sector management of plant, equipment, and support structure integrity through all stages of the plant life cycle. We undertake advanced Structural Engineering analysis of assets and equipment ranging from bulk material handling machines, conveyors, tunnels, tanks, silos, pipelines and support structures for any plant or equipment equipment. Using state of the art analytical packages, AMOG can design and assess complex structures and components requiring non-lineal solutions. Our services in this area include: 

  • Large displacement and staged Finite Element Analysis (FEA) with linear and non linear material and geometry
  • Fracture, Fatigue, and Joint Cracking Analysis to AS 4100, BS 7608, EN 1993-1-9, DNVGL-PR-0001 and more
  • Assessment of existing Structures to AS ISO 13822, including civil structures and foundations
  • Reliability, Strength and Robustness to AS 1170, AS 5104, ISO 2394, AS 4324, AS 4100, AS 3990, AS 3600 and more
