For ships and ship shape FPSO offshore structures, typically the structural solutions include deflections and stresses from the structural programs Nastran, LS-DYNA, and Sestra. The assessment of structural programs are done using SAGA to carry out advanced :

  • Auto-preparation of assessment model to manage dimensions of members
  • Yielding and Buckling Criteria and Code Checks
  • Code checks per ABS, DNV, Lloyds, API, AISC
  • Rigorous stiffened beam and plate rules
