RIGID FINITE ELEMENT METHOD IN ANALYSIS OF DYNAMICS OF OFFSHORE STRUCTURES
|D O W N L O A D|
The content of this publication prepared by the group of leading experts is intended to describe toe newly introduced methods applied to model the machine dynamics used in today’s offshore industry. Subject methods are normally based on the rigid FEM (i.e. finite element method) – this method is utilized when addressing the link deformations. In addition, they are also based on the homogeneous transformations – in turn, this one would be applicable to the dynamics of the multi-body system.
The authors of this book provide a good introduction to both methods so that the readers can have a clear idea of the associated principles. The models that are selected to model the above mentioned dynamics are subsequently verified through the special FEM-based software. Some of the additional calculation methods are also applied.
The math models of the offshore machines, for example the BOP gantry crane, or the machinery used for laying pipes, have been included by the authors to better illustrate the theory. Additionally, selected numerical operation simulations have also been provided. The publication will of particular interest to the designers of the various offshore facilities.
