Today’s’ sleek laptop computers quickly perform the calculations required for useful
modeling of industrial applications. But 1965, was the year Francis Bricmont was
the first to apply computer numerical analysis to the reheating of steel. it took
such a visionary thinker and, in 1977,a room-sized computer to realize the benefits
associated with computer modeling. From that genesis sprung the company which today
bears the name “Bricmont”.
Today, the heirs of that legacy continue to use computer modeling to answer questions
critical to the industrial client such as:
How can I maximize production?
How can I reduce energy costs?
How can I improve product quality?
How can I reduce
How can I reduce maintenance?
These and other questions are answered using a suite of codes, many
for applications such as radiation heat transfer, finite difference temperature
distributions, and furnace energy balances. Our analytical flexibility is enhanced
by licensed codes for finite element stress analysis and
computational fluid dynamics
These modeling tools are put to work in studies that typically begin with a site
visit and data collection. The data collected is used to tune a model that can then
accurately predict the effect of
modifications to a process. The benefits thus quantified
are weighed against cost estimates that reflect Bricmont’s experience as a
systems integrator. The final report is communicated in a format that fits your
from a simple letter to a multi-volume bound report suitable for your board
