Bentley Systems, Incorporated, the leading company dedicated to providing comprehensive software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, announced the release of SACS version 5.6 software that expands installation capabilities, integrates new wind turbine platform design functionality, and introduces floating analysis for offshore vessels.
SACS is an integrated suite of software that supports the analysis, design, fabrication, and installation of offshore structures, including oil, gas, and wind farm platforms and topsides. Its ability to dynamically iterate designs allows users to perform advanced analysis, comply with offshore design criteria, and visualize complex results.
SACS provides offshore engineers with comprehensive analysis and design capabilities that improve infrastructure operational safety and minimize risk and ensure compliance for a broad range of structures. It is proficient in specialized analyses important to any offshore project, including: non-linear structural analysis; dynamic response analysis due to wind, current, waves, and seismic loads; analysis for impact effects; and special high-end analysis for severe accidental loadings such as dynamic blast, ship impact, and structural collapse. SACS can model tubular jacket structures, foundations, spars, and topsides, as well as perform detailed fatigue life calculations.
In addition to its support for international offshore-specific design codes and checks, the power of SACS is further enhanced by its 64-bit capability, multi-core processor speed, and ability to reuse data by seamlessly integrating with other Bentley applications via ISM. For designers of offshore wind turbine structure, SACS integrates with third-party software including GH Bladed and FAST.
