Meet the Team - Ross Hartwig

14th Jul 2021

Many people in the pressurised equipment industry will know the FINGLOW name from the respected pressure vessel design software that has proved to be one of the most popular tools for the pressure vessel and heat exchanger designer over the past 40 years.

Fewer people will know about the capabilities of Finglow Consultants Ltd (FCL), who offer a comprehensive range of engineering consultancy services to those involved in design, analysis, assessment and safe operation of pressurised equipment.

FCL’s lead piping stress engineer, Ross Hartwig, is well versed in the requirements of the ASME B31.3 process piping design code and has extensive experience in using CAESAR II piping flexibility analysis software for both static and dynamic loading scenarios. He is also an advanced user of ANSYS finite element analysis software and has specific experience in the use of non-linear limit load analysis methods to predict collapse and buckling failure modes in marine structures.

Ross’ areas of expertise also cover the design and assessment of subsea flanges, particularly where the risk of hydrogen induced stress cracking (HISC) requires consideration, and the application of rules in DNVGL-RP-F112 are essential to avoid the onset of premature HISC damage.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like more details of how FCL could be of assistance to your organisation. Either go to the Get in Touch page on our website or call us on 01992 585450. Alternatively, if you prefer, you can contact Ross directly by e-mail at or via his direct line telephone number - 01992 585451.
