Engineering Simulation and Design

Having expert engineers, Nafttech’s major capacity is computational simulation of platforms with a range of software (SACS, SESAM, ANSYS, ABAQUS, etc.).

Nafttech prepares simulation of platform based on available drawings, survey, etc. which gives involved engineers a thorough insight about the current condition of the platform and its strength subjected to different loads and phenomena.

Nafttech conducts the following assessments of offshore platforms through simulation:

  • In-place analysis
  • Push-over analysis
  • Boat impact / Fire / Blast safety analysis
  • Fatigue analysis
  • Stress analysis / strength assessment with ABAQUS / ANSYS for exceptional design loads

The insight acquired thorough simulation helps Nafttech to design platform upgrade / strengthening in a much optimized mode which reduces the costs significantly. Nafttech engineers are well equipped with design tools and aware of new upgrade / strengthening methods.

It is noteworthy to highlight that later on engineers from Operator Company, other consultants, third parties, etc. could use the simulation to assess any extension, modification, etc. projects.
