SACS is an offshore structural design and finite element analysis software made up of several compatible structural analysis programs that support the analysis, design, fabrication, and installation of offshore structures including those used in on fixed and mobile oil and gas platforms, and wind farm platforms. SACS® is used widely across the Oil & Gas industry by almost every Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) Company in the world.
Offshore Structural Design & Analysis Training Using SACS is developed for experienced structural engineers, offshore engineers, subsea engineers, and pipeline engineers who want to improve their skillset by learning the use of SACS for the design and analysis of offshore structures.
SACS can be used to the modelling of tubular jacket structures, pile and mat foundations, spars, and topsides structures. SACS® can equally carry out detailed fatigue life calculations, In-place Analysis, Lift Analysis, Pile Soil Interaction (PSI), and Transportation Analysis. It is capable of simulating and analyzing structural responses due to wind, current, waves, and seismic loads; and special high-end analysis for severe accidental loadings such as dynamic blast, ship impact, structural collapse, and Seismic analyses.
