SUC Brasil 2012 : Sesam for Topsides

  1. 1. 1SesamTM40 years of successEfficient engineering of topside structuresOle Jan Nekstad, Product Director Sesam3 December 2012
  2. 2. Efficient engineering of topside structures Save man-hours and increase quality by using the latest available capabilities in concept technologies for - Structure modelling - Deadweight loads - Environmental loads - Forces, stresses, deflections - Beam/plate code checking - Fatigue from wave or wind - Refined fatigue - ULS, FLS, ALSSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 2
  3. 3. Topside structures (including modules, flare booms, bridges) On jacket On floater - Often members only - Often plates and stiffeners and membersSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 3
  4. 4. Common challenges in designSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 4
  5. 5. The importance of the Sesam design loop 40-60% of engineering time often spent in evaluation How fast can you do it over again?SesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 5
  6. 6. How can Sesam GeniE help you to design a topside structure StructureSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 6
  7. 7. Structure modelling Easy to facilitate the range from small to large and complexSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 7
  8. 8. Structure modelling Combine detailed models in a global model Beam - FE results, SCF for beam fatigue, plate fatigue Plates FE beam FE shellSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 8
  9. 9. Structure modelling Make the complete model in Sesam GeniE - Beams, plates, trusses, double beams, segmented members, auto creation of tubular joints, connections - Automatic model update when inserting, deleting, moving, copying - The model topology is always updated, hence major changes in the model may easily be performed - You may be become more productive by using scripting and parametric modelling - Several engineers can work on parts of the topside and merge prior to analysis - Result evaluation may also be performed on same parts - Same model and loads may be used for several loading conditions Re-use data and continue modelling in GeniE - Older Sesam models - Sacs, StaadPro, StruCad3D, AnsysSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 9
  10. 10. How can Sesam GeniE help you to design a topside structure Deadweight loadsSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 10
  11. 11. Deadweight loads From structural mass x gravity From point masses x gravity Blanket loads (evenly distributed mass) Equipments Specific pressure loads, point or line loads Mass of ice x gravity (same as marine growth for jacket) Compartment loads Temperature loadsSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 11
  12. 12. Deadweight loads When jack-up is in “fixed structure” modus. Easy to define compartment loads - Content and filling degree is enough to compute the acting pressures in the wallsSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 12
  13. 13. How can Sesam GeniE help you to design a topside structure Environmental loadsSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 13
  14. 14. Topsides/modules on jackets or floaters Topside on jackets Topside on floaters - All is done inside Sesam GeniE - Opt. 1 - Integrated: Results from Sesam HydroD - Wind, current, wave (hydrodynamic frequency or time domain - Morison theory analysis) imported into Sesam GeniE - Deterministic, stochastic, time domain - Opt. 2 - No load transfer: Accelerations and deflections are computed in Sesam HydroD and - Non-linear pile/soil analysis normally included used as basis for load-cases in Sesam GeniESesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 14
  15. 15. Option 1: Topsides/modules on floaters Waves give deformations and stresses in topsides and modules - These are converted to deterministic loads before import to Sesam GeniESesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 16
  16. 16. Option 2: Topsides/modules on floaters Deformations and accelerations used to define load cases in Sesam GeniE - Accelerations constant or centripetal (from Sesam HydroD) - Deformations from global structural analysis (used as prescribed displacements in GeniE) Sp1: 2mm Sp2: 3mm Sp3: 5mm Centripetal Acceleration Sp4: 2mmSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS. All rights reserved. 17
  17. 17. Topsides/modules on jackets Codes of practice specify different safety factors for structural mass on various parts of the structure Sesam GeniE can work with different load factors for structure mass by using a utility script as found on the Sesam GeniE SnackPack - I.e. Force = acceleration x mass x load factor Lower level loads from mass Upper level loads from Rotational acceleration x acceleration (x & z-dir) mass x acceleration (z-dir) Harmonic induced wave motionSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS.

  19. 19. Efficient engineering – typical steps First assessment - Forces, stresses and deflections Code checking - Check against prescriptive standards Member re-design - Evaluate the effect of modifying section properties or code check parameters - Often many attempts – depends on the engineer’s experience Design iteration - A complete re-run of all to document the re-designSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS.

  32. 32. Code checking of stiffened panels Create panels - Panels are independent of analysis and finite element mesh Three different options to define panels - Min Box finds the smallest idealised rectangular panel possible enclosing the possibly non- rectangular structural region - Max Area Moment is an alternative algorithm finding the major axis based on calculation of area moment of inertia of the surface. This algorithm will also work for irregular panel Min Box shapes - CSR Tank Default is the algorithm usually used when doing a CSR Tank (PULS) code check Max Area MomentSesamTM3 December 2012© Det Norske Veritas AS.
