Main Question or Discussion Point

Where to find a Web service that solves engineering/maths problems at a cost?

I am building a structural frame and need to calculate stress/strains on loaded parts, also I need to calculate bolt sizes etc. I need someone to calculate these values for me in order to build the most cost effective structure.

Are there web services/ businesses out there that do work like this?
What kind of of cost would one expect for a job like this?

What you are looking for is an engineering consulting firm/service. If you live in a somewhat industrialized area, you should have several in your tri-county area.

Thanks for the reply.

What I was wondering was is there companys/individuals on the web that do the same job as those in my industrialized area? I want to get this done as cheaply as possible so I assumed an individual calculating these would be cheapest rather than a company with overheads.

If you're building a structural frame and need engineering design and analysis work, then you'll probably only find that with an Engineering firm or a consultant. The consultant will charge somewhere around $150 per hour and should be a licensed PE.

Engineering firms tend to be slightly higher but have the advantage of more experienced people instead of one consultant plus could handle a higher work load.

Would you pay for a cheap internet surgeon to do your heart bypass operation?
