Apps

Lateral pile analysis

This application calculates the pile behaviour under lateral loading. The calculations are based on a 1D finite element model with Timoshenko beam theory and all 4 soil reaction components of the PISA 1D model.

Premium app includes:

  • API model

  • No restrictions for pile geometry

Axial pile analysis

This application calculates the axial pile capacity using various common design methods for offshore foundations. Methods include: API, ICP, UWA, Alm & Hamre (for pile driving).

This functionality is only available in the premium app.

 

Pile driving

This application calculates the pile behaviour during pile driving, where the stress waves in the pile are simulated. It is based on a finite element model, with a predictor-corrector method to perform time-stepping.

Premium app includes:

  • API / Alm & Hamre SRD + user defined SRD

  • Detailed driving settings

Spudcan penetration

This application calculates the load-penetration curve for a spudcan of a jack-up vessel. The calculations are performed according to the mechanism based method in the InSafe JIP report allowing for multiple layer interactions. 


MPM simulations are available upon request.

Premium app includes:​​

  • No restrictions for spudcan geometry

Suction installation / extraction

This application calculates the caisson or pile behaviour during suction installation or hydraulic extraction. The calculations are based on a 1D finite element limit analysis model, to capture layered soil profiles and different potential failure mechanisms.

Premium app includes:

  • Axial pile resistance models

  • No restrictions for pile geometry

Offshore loads

Calculate the forces acting on a (mono)pile due to wind, waves and currents.


The wave loads use linear wave theory combined with the Morison equation. The currents and wind loads are calculated with a power law profile.

This functionality is only available in the premium app.
