SACS Collapse

Offshore Collapse Analysis Software

Find the Limits

Identify failure mechanisms from a range of dynamic events including pushover, ship impact, dropped object, and blast analysis.

WHAT IS SACS Collapse?

SACS Collapse is offshore collapse analysis software that helps you determine the structural operating limits of your offshore structures.  It makes it easy to identify failure mechanisms such as pushover and ship impact to dropped object, and blast analysis. With easy-to-use, non-linear finite element analysis capabilities you can reduce the risk of structural failure caused by extreme loads from environmental conditions or accidental incidents.

Automate Workflows

Automated workflows simplify the management of large and complex models, which encourage the team to explore more collapse scenarios. Customizable templates within a common structural model make it easier to manage multiple analyses.

Accelerate Accurate Predictions

Automate predictions with a high degree of certainty, whether analyzing nonlinear structural behavior or large deflection elasto-plastic response for platforms or piles.

Display Results Graphically

Visualize the outcome of full plastic analysis, including effects from impulse and time-based loading. Show failure progression, gradual plastification, and collapse mechanisms graphically.
