What is SACS Offshore Structure? What is SACS Offshore Structure used for? Who uses SACS Offshore Structure?
SACS Offshore Structure is a package of integrated finite element structural analysis applications that facilitate the design of all types of offshore structures—oil and gas platforms, wind farms, and topsides of FPSOs and floating platforms.
Offshore engineers around the world use SACS Offshore Structure to predict the behavior of offshore structures, automate workflows, and ensure compliance with offshore design codes.
Three versions allow you to choose the one that best aligns with your project’s needs:
- SACS Offshore Structure
Accelerate your designs with wizards for creating high-fidelity models, while simplifying the management and analysis of these complex models with automated structural workflows.
- SACS Offshore Structure Advanced
Extend the basic package with wind loading analysis capabilities to help you produce optimized, high-quality topsides for fixed and floating structures.
- SACS Offshore Structure Ultimate
Wave-loading capabilities complete the full capabilities for static structural and topside analysis, so you can create fit-for-purpose jackets, wharfs, dolphin structures, and more.
Each version of SACS Offshore Structure enables you to:
- Analyze offshore structures under a variety of conditions
Conduct comprehensive analyses—including full non-linear, dynamic, and impact effects—to predict how your platform or topside structure will behave under a host of conditions. Model pile-soil interactions and apply wind, wave, seismic, ship impact, dropped object, and blast loads for a full range of likely effects.
- Automate your workflows
Customizable templates within a common structural model make it easier to manage multiple analyses. You can automatically pass data from one analysis step to another using industry-standard methodologies. These automated workflows simplify managing large and complex models, which encourages your team to explore more design options.
- Automatically ensure compliance
Built-in checking provides assurance that your designs comply with offshore international codes, including API, AISC, EC, ISO, DNV, and Norsok. The software allows you to filter for critical conditions and provide compliance documentation.
