It is required that the participants have attended SE-04 Concept based FE modelling and analysis of shell structures - Advanced - alternatively SE-05 Hydrostatic analysis of offshore floaters, SE-06 Hydrodynamic analysis of offshore floaters - frequency domain and SE-16 FPSO cargo hold analysis or have similar knowledge in use of GeniE, HydroD, Wadam and Sestra.
SE-23 FPSO global strength and spectral fatigue analysis
The course focuses on direct hydrodynamic analysis and strength analysis methods, global structural analysis and spectral fatigue calculations. You will go throug the process of carrying out global analysis with calculation of loads using GeniE, HydroD, Wadam and Sestra. Ultimate strength, local analysis and stochastic fatigue calculations are covered with practical examples using Cutres, Xtract, Puls, Submod and Stofat. The course focuses on practical use of the software tools in the analysis workflow.
You will learn how to perform all necessary steps of assessing the structural integrity of an FPSO.
