    Floating Systems Design and Offshore Installation

    Assurance in offshore installation

Floating Systems Design and Offshore Installation Solution

The design, modeling, and installation of today's offshore floating structural systems demands careful planning, analysis and simulation to ensure their successful delivery and installation in the field. Using hydrostatic and hydrodynamic analysis, you can simulate the loadout, transportation, lifting, floatout, and launch of major floating structures such as FPSOs, jackets, and floating platforms. Working in collaboration with Bentley's Offshore Structural Analysis and Design solution, you can reduce the risks during the installation delivery of these major structures.

Capabilities
  • Analyze floating systems

    • ​Automate global performance analysis using the simulation language to define environmental conditions, specify mooring configurations, and run integrated solvers in a unified environment. Ensure system response is within defined limits over a range of operating conditions.​​
  • Assess vessel compliance

    • Ensure compliance with international stability criteria and balance vessel performance requirements using integrated analysis tools. Perform a range of analyses including intact and damaged stability, power and resistance calculation, vessel motion prediction, and structural stress analysis.​​
  • Create stress analysis reports

    • ​Create comprehensive stress analysis reports graphically during offshore structure finite element analysis. Display shear and bending moment diagrams together with deflected shapes for static and dynamic analyses. Animate deflected and modal shapes. Produce color plate stress contour reports.
  • Model offshore vessels and platforms

    • Easily create models of new or existing hulls and transform them to match project requirements. Prepare models of vessels or floating systems using interactive offshore-specific graphical tools. Visualize tank and compartment models during modification to ensure accurate loading definition.​​
  • Optimize vessel design

    • Perform fast hull form variation and analysis with team-based concurrent modeling on a common 3D parametric model. Easily visualize and assess design alternatives ​​with smooth data flow within a consistent graphical environment.​​
  • Simulate marine operations

    • Manage complex installation sequences and systematically explore design alternatives with comprehensive and customizable scripting tools. Meet offshore engineering challenges using predefined macros based on historical projects to simulate, visualize, and evaluate planned activities. ​​
