What is SACS Collapse?
SACS Collapse is collapse analysis software that allows you to determine the structural operating limits of your offshore structures. The application’s easy-to-use, non-linear finite element analysis capabilities help users reduce the risk of structural failure caused by extreme loads from environmental conditions or accidental events. Conduct full plastic analysis for initial, recertification, and safety case design and expedite workflows using the standard SACS analysis input data. SACS Collapse is fully integrated with SACS Offshore Structure, so no new modeling is required, while data integrity is assured.
SACS Collapse software makes it easy to identify failure mechanisms from a range of dynamic events including pushover, ship impact, dropped object, and blast analysis. Save time and reduce errors because users can model both the structure and foundation in one environment. Coupling it with the SACS Dynamic Response module improves the accuracy of structure performance predictions.
- Automate offshore structural workflows
Customizable templates within a common structural model make it easier to manage multiple analyses. Automatically pass data from one analysis step to another using industry-standard methodologies. These automated workflows simplify managing large and complex models, which encourages the team to explore more collapse scenarios.
- Accelerate accurate predictions
SACS Collapse provides the ability to automate predictions with a high degree of certainty, whether analyzing non-linear structural behavior or large deflection elasto-plastic response for platforms or piles.
- Graphically display collapse results
This software makes it easy to visualize the outcome of full plastic analysis, including effects from impulse and time-based loading. Graphically show failure progression, gradual plastification, and collapse mechanisms.
Depending on project needs, choose from:
- SACS Collapse
Perform advanced plastic analysis to determine an accurate collapse design outcome for offshore structures.
- SACS Collapse Advanced
Adds to the functions of SACS Collapse to enable advanced, non-linear plastic analysis. The program supports large deflections, large rotations, arc length iterations, automatic sub-incrementations, and torsional buckling.
