Creating Interactive Techniques and Automated Workplaces

Using ANSYS EKM allows to create automated workplaces and interactive techniques on the basis of ANSYS software and other products. An interactive technique is a web-application which works with one or several parametric models. Such environment allows to customize the software interface according to user’s demands.

Optimal design of Nautilus-based dual-usage turbine

Optimal design of Nautilus-based dual-usage turbine

The original aerodynamic design of a non-cavitating marine turbine exhibited performance-degrading cavitation in the hub region at high rotation rate. Using a numerical optimization approach, the cavitation was fully eliminated by updating the local geometry of turbine helical blades. Computational outputs were obtained using a combination of ANSYS SpaceClaim, ANSYS CFX and Fluent, ANSYS Simplorer and ANSYS optiSLang software working in the ANSYS Workbench 'end-to-end' environment.

Structural Analysis and Fatigue Assessment of a Subsea Mooring Line Connector

Structural Analysis and Fatigue Assessment of a Subsea Mooring Line Connector

First Subsea designed a Mandrel-Receptacle mooring line connector for the Thunder Hawk Regional Development project and required IDAC to perform the following analyses to assess the structural response of the Mandrel-Receptacle assembly and the fatigue responses of the Mandrel and Receptacle in accordance with the DNV standards document.

Structural Analysis of Captain FPSO Lower Fairleads

Structural Analysis of Captain FPSO Lower Fairleads

During a routine inspection on the Chevron operated Captain FPSO (floating production, storage and offloading vessel) the company identified an integrity issue with one of the vessels eight fairleads – noting that one of the bolts connecting the gypsy wheel shaft to the skirt of the fairlead was missing.
