Using FEA and CFD software for innovation, flexibility and efficiency in marine and offshore structural engineering for oil & gas production structures, fixed offshore wind turbine support structures, ships and floating offshore structures, our engineers can give you the optimal basis for critical engineering decisions during the entire lifecycle of your asset, be it a topside, jacket, jack-up, mooring system, dynamic stability of floating structures, risers or offshore wind turbine support structure. We Use CFD tools such as MSC Cradle, Ansys Fluent, Siemens Star-ccm+ and FEA Tools such as Abaqus, MSC Nastran and LS-DYNA with combination of very experienced engineers to help our customers.

Assessing wave impact loads on ships and offshore structures and superstructures

Wave impacts are among the most extreme loads occurring on ships and offshore structures. Even if extreme loads are taken into account for design rules, understanding non-linear impacts and computing water on deck or on superstructures remains a major design issue. Bow shapes and design, deck layout including deflectors must also be taken into account to protect equipment and ensure the safety of the crew. Transient behavior of structure investigated by using combination of FEA and CFD tools including Hydrodynamics and Aerodynamics effects.
