This project is part of a screening and crushing system fully engineered and designed in 3D using Tekla by Mercury Engineering. The 3D model and ability to share 3D files allowed our client to visualize critical material flow and equipment … Continue reading
This project is a small building addition that was designed using Tekla Structures. The Tekla model was built and checked by Mercury Engineering – eliminating RFIs and speeding the time from design to project fabrication by delivering a fully detailed … Continue reading
Transfer station station combined belt splice station, take up and drive in one structure. A jib crane is included to simplify future maintenance of the drive and head pulley.
Client needed to replace an existing pump support platform with one that would allow easy access for maintenance and replacement. The structure also had to be easy to visually inspect for an annual structural condition assessment. Pump Support by larryd … Continue reading
Project involved field measuring to design a replacement rock box and transfer point for a conveyor system. The new design included AR plate liners, upgraded guarding and revised support system to correct excessive deflection under load of the previous design. … Continue reading
Investigated the root cause of floor slab deficiencies in a 48,500 sq-ft nursing home. The project involved detailed mapping of the existing deficiencies, geotechnical investigation and recommendations for remedial actions. The client has been experiencing problems for many years and … Continue reading
This 1,200 cubic foot bulk material storage silo was designed using FEA analysis. The design considered wind and seismic force with seismic force controlling.
This power plant exhaust duct lift weight was 47 tons and over 100’ in the air. We designed the lift beam, rigging and verified the duct would support the lift loads. We also provided a deflection analysis of the duct … Continue reading
Structural engineering and design for several stair systems used on this bridge in Portsmouth, NH. Project scope included conventional stair tower and alternating tread stairs.
Process building for bulk material handling plant. Process Building by larryd on Sketchfab
This beam and column are part of a critical piece of material handling equipment. The beam forms the support for a 140 foot high tower that in turn supports material handling conveyors. Time and lack of maintenance had degraded the … Continue reading
Complex to simple wood frames can be easily modeled and analyzed to solve unique residential and commercial framing problems. Deflections are easily determined in addition to evaluating wood member strength. Careful consideration of deflections will avoid “bouncy floors” and other undesirable results that can result when using prescribed designs and manual methods in unsuitable applications. The below images show a few projects where complicated wood frames … Continue reading
We provide structural calculations for stair fabricators using advanced structural analysis software to check multiple design concepts quickly and efficiently. For certain projects our advanced analysis capabilities such as vibration checks may help lower costs by using lighter materials when … Continue reading
This project required the evaluation of an existing roof system to support new HVAC equipment loads. The roof consisted of steel joists and an 86 foot long fabricated truss in the gymnasium. Additional design deliverables included modification to existing equipment … Continue reading
As part of our focus on steel fabricators we provide comprehensive connection design services. From simple steel moment connections to complex connection design requiring finite element analysis we can meet all your needs for professional engineering services. We use the … Continue reading
One of our key focus areas is supporting steel fabricators with structural design services. We provide structural engineering for field fixes, connection design and any other miscellaneous design engineering that is required. The below picture shows a simple field fix.
As one of the consulting engineers for his very unique custom designed concrete swimming pool we faced several unique challenges. The pool sits on top of grade beams and is unsupported in several key areas. We performed an in depth … Continue reading
This aluminum frame is designed to support an array of solar panels on top of a commercial building. The project involved structural design and analysis of the aluminum frame and design of the connections. The design was completed in record … Continue reading
Our client was responsible for designing several large industrial structures in a very high seismic zone. We provided engineering consulting services that consisted of detailed structural engineering for design and member size optimization.
Our client was another engineering firm that required a comprehensive structural model of the NASA VAB in Cape Canaveral Florida on a very tight project schedule. We worked as part of the design team as a consultant engineer to support the project and meet … Continue reading
This 560 foot long steel truss system was designed to meet rigorous seismic requirements.
Video of a truss analysis showing deflection from lateral seismic loads. Total length of the truss system is over 500 feet.
Our client was responsible for verifying the overall integrity of a stainless steel truss framing system that was designed by a third party. Mercury Engineering was retained to provide structural engineering in support of evaluating the deflections and adequacy of … Continue reading
