This course focuses on concept modelling and analysis of floating shell structures and other shell structures for the purpose of structural analysis using Sestra (linear structural analysis). GeniE (conceptual modelling) is the modelling tool. Exercises in concept modelling of a tubular joint, a crane pedestal and/or a semi-submersible are included. There will also be a session on scripting. Finally, advanced results presentation using the Xtract (FE results presentation postprocessor) is covered.
Learn how to use the concept modelling technique of Sesam to create FE models of complex curved shell structures. Emphasis is put on how to create and tune a FE mesh. Also learn how to extract analysis results for inclusion in a report.
Structural engineers involved in detailed design of fixed and floating offshore structures built up by plates/shells and stiffeners. The course is also relevant for engineers involved in FEED studies.
