What is SACS Pile Structure Design?
Add this module to any SACS Offshore Structure version, and users can perform nonlinear analysis of soil, pile, and structure interactions to reduce the risk of fatigue. Understanding the response of oil, gas, or wind turbine platforms to cyclic environmental or mechanical loads provides the ability to create safer foundations. The easy-to-use environment—which is fully integrated with SACS Offshore Structure—expedites the creation of high-quality designs that comply with international design codes. Designs created with SACS Pile Structure Design helps accelerate workflows by providing fully coupled analysis.
- 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 encourage your team to explore more design alternatives.
- Increase the safety of your structures
SACS Pile Structure Design enables you to assess the capacity of the soil on which you are building, to withstand operating and extreme structural loads. Model behavior for axial, lateral, and torsional loads at the pilehead with nonlinear load deflection curves. In seismic zones, use the software to account for reduced soil capacity due to liquefaction.
- Accurately model coupling effects
The ability to automatically generate foundation super elements helps users efficiently create designs for dynamic analysis. Super elements provide the ability to quickly linearize piled foundations, then model the effect of displacements and rotations with a fully coupled 6x6 matrix for each pile group.
