Simulation & Computation: Finite Element Analysis (FEA)

The Finite Element Method (FEM) is the state-of-the-art method for structural strength analyses. However, due to the increasing complexity of structures and broadness of specific offshore applications and operations, Finite-Element Analyses (FEA) are still challenging and require experienced engineers to achieve reasonable and reliable results. The demand for combining multidisciplinary physics and topics such as

Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI),

Soil mechanics,

Soil-pile interaction,

Nonlinear material behavior,

Contact and collision,

Imperfections due to manufacturing,

Dynamic effects and kinematic,


is continuously growing. Therefore, ESOS offers to perform advanced static and transient nonlinear simulations based on the Finite-Element Method employing experienced simulation engineers. A high degree of automation by means of user routines is mandatory to reduce time and costs.

ESOS also offers plausibility and consistency checks of numerical models that already have been created for your specific problems.

Some exemplary FEA applications done by ESOS:

Bolt connections

Boatlanding analyses

Support structures in water (structural dynamics)

Hot-spot and notch stress analysis for fatigue

Impact load analysis (e. g. wave-induced)

Seafastening and construction analysis

Static and dynamic analysis of weldings, castings and forged parts

Scouring etc.
