Sesam CAESES: Serious Play in Ship Design - Simulation-Driven Design for Naval Architects By DNV GL - Software
Simulation driven design is widely considered the key to innovative product development. While the integration of modeling and simulation is already well established in structural mechanics this is not yet the case with its fluid dynamic sibling. This is because Computational Fluid Dynamics is very demanding in terms of resources. Therefore, the intelligent modeling of functional shapes – like ship hull forms, propellers, pumps and turbines – is of paramount importance.

Naval architects have always been subjected to cope with non-planar shapes and have developed techniques that capture the essence of a complex geometry with as few defining elements as need be. These elements, normally called form parameters, are used to generate and vary a product. By closely coupling parametric modeling to simulation a synthesis model is created. Adding techniques of formal optimization, the process is further enhanced: It now provides the playground for serious work, complementing the human being’s intuition, experience and ingenuity....

Power Distribution > Utilities Retail > White Papers Hydrodynamic Analysis of Offshore Structures By DNV GL - Software
This paper describes the role of a linear frequency domain analysis for offshore structures, and some of the important aspects that must be addressed when doing such an analysis. The two main challenges in this analysis, in addition to creating a good quality panel model, are: how to include the viscous effects, and how to handle the mooring system. Both of these will be discussed in some detail.... Power Distribution > Utilities Retail > White Papers A Consequence-Based Assessment Method/Software Model to Facilitate the Safe Location and Design of Occupied Buildings on or in Close Proximity to Process Facilities By DNV GL - Software
Ensuring the safe location and design of occupied buildings (permanent or temporary) is high on the agenda of key stakeholders – industry, regulators, and the workforce, not to mention members of the public who have a vested interest in the area. The significant amount of analytical work required in support of such an analysis represents a key barrier to conducting such studies in a detailed manner. It is often the case that a range of simplifications are utilised that can result in a less than realistic assessment.

This paper describes the implementation of two of the most widely used vapour cloud explosion (VCE) models, namely the TNO multi-energy (ME) and Baker-Strehlow-Tang (BST) into Phast, a general purpose onshore consequence analysis software package developed by DNV GL. ...
Power Distribution > Utilities Retail > White Papers Sesam for Subsea By DNV GL - Software
In the oil and gas industry the term subsea relates to the underwater exploration, development and drilling of oil and gas fields. Subsea installations are used to develop reservoirs outside effective reach of existing platforms; they can be installed, designed and constructed in faster time than traditional platforms, making them an attractive substitute. And if surface facilities are available subsea is a much less expensive alternative, and can reduce the size of expensive platforms by moving some of the functionalities to the sea bed.

Subsea systems can range in complexity from a single satellite well connected to a fixed or floating facility to several wells connected to a central manifold tied to platforms or directly to an onshore installation.

This paper offers an introduction to subsea and showcases how Sesam offers the most complete and efficient tool to perform the design analysis of subsea structures....
