At r+k Consulting Engineers, we are fascinated by pipelines since the founding in 1961. Especially their structural behaviour, strength and stability, degradation and failure modes and their effects. Or more general, the safety of the living and natural environment and the pipeline and workers around shall be safeguarded.
We have broad experience in many ways that have to do with pipelines, in the broadest sense of the word.
- pipeline engineering consultancy for onland pipelines in soft and hard soils and for offshore pipelines with typical offshore loadings or in combination with other offshore structures,
- pipeline integrity assessment, to guarantee the structural integrity of pipelines,
- pipeline-related software development, transforming knowledge to tools.
Following our fascination for pipelines, we try to figure out the nature of this phenomenon by building a computer tool to simulate and analyze pipeline behaviour. Our unique and user-friendly Ple4Win tool for pipeline analysis has been refined and adapted in the wake of new developments and requirements for over fifty years now. Our sister company Expert Design Systems (EDS) licenses this same software suite to clients: Oil & Gas companies, governments and other pipeline engineering consultants.
In this way we make our contribution to society and run our business.
