Golder Associates’ roots lie in rock and soil mechanics, a relatively young discipline when the firm was established in Canada in 1960. Golder has since grown to be an international consulting group providing engineering and environmental services. These services include specialist skills in numerical based stress test analysis crucial to the nuclear sector.
Our edge is that we understand the engineering, and we are able to provide workflows that cover the full site specific interpretation, extending to establishing process and subsystem models for providing insight and understanding, resulting in the derivation of rational abstractions for making judgements on performance assessments.
Through the appraisal of site data we construct detailed “process models”, our analyses are able to provide assessment of impact for a wide range of stress test impacts, covering floods/tsunamis, earthquakes, meteorite impact, explosions/seismic loads/shock waves, and periglacial environments, etc
