  • Sesam in general

  • Pushover Collapse Analysis of Jacket

    Jacket4Leg_Collapse.jpg

    This example shows how to use Usfos to do a pushover collapse analysis of a jacket. The jacket is subjected to gravity and buoyancy plus a wave that is scaled (unrealistically) to provoke a pushover collapse. The input to GeniE to create the model is provided. The input to Usfos, however, is not provided. A document attached to the job explains how to establish the rather limited input to Usfos.

  • Floater Hydrodynamic Analysis

    FloatingBox.jpg

    This example involves using Sesam Manager, GeniE, HydroD, Postresp, Sestra and Xtract. The example demonstrates how to do a hydrodynamic analysis followed by a structural analysis of a floating object. Analysis of a damaged condition with waterfilled compartments is also included. Import the zip file into a new Sesam Manager job.

  • Tension/Compression Analysis

    ModuleTensionCompression.jpg

    This example involves using Sesam Manager, GeniE, Sestra and Xtract. The example demonstrates how to analyse a module with tension-only and compression-only members. Import the zip file into a new Sesam Manager job.

  • Gap/Contact Analysis

    JackUpLegContactProblem.jpg

    This example involves using Sesam Manager, GeniE, Presel, Sestra, SestraGap and Xtract.
    The example demonstrates how to run SestraGap to solve a contact-gap problem.
    The model is a single jackup leg with a triangular prism illuding the jackup deck. The material density of the triangular prism is high so as to capture the deck mass. The edges of the prism are fixed for rotation about X and Y so as to achieve the S-shaped deformation forced by the deck. The three bottom points of the leg are fixed.
    Import the zip file into a new job. A pdf file (JackUpLegWithGapContact.pdf) is attached and provides details on the analysis. There is also a ReadMe file attached. Start by reading this.

  • Fatigue Analysis with Manually Specified Oscillating Loads

    Det_fat_without_waves.jpg

    This example involves using Sesam Manager, GeniE, Sestra and Framework. Create a new job in Sesam Manager and import the zip file to run the example.
    The example demonstrates how to run a so-called direct deterministic fatigue analysis of a structure. This is a fatigue analysis with manually specified oscillating loads. (As opposed to wave loads computed by Wajac.) An example of such load is rotating machinery (with eccentric mass).
    The example is a simple tower subjected to acceleration fields, horizontal and rotational, all together 4 loading situations. Each loading situation is modelled by two loads representing the two extremes of the loading situation. (For rotating machinery two concentrated forces may be used, a positive force and a negative force representing the two extreme loading situations.)

  • Comprehensive Analysis of Jacket

    Jacket_4Leg_Comprehensive.jpg

    This example involves using Sesam Manager, GeniE, Wajac, Sestra, Splice, Framework and other programs. It includes several analyses of a 4 legged jacket:
    - Static analysis of jacket fixed at sea floor
    - Free vibration (eigenvalue) analysis of fixed jacket
    - Static analysis of jacket with piles
    - Linearising piles and soil so as to replace them by linear springs
    - Free vibration (eigenvalue) analysis of jacket with linear spring support
    - Deterministic fatigue analysis of jacket
    - Spectral fatigue analysis of jacket, static structural analysis
    - Spectral fatigue analysis of jacket, dynamic structural analysis
    - Stochastic fatigue analysis of jacket, dynamic structural analysis
    - Earthquake analysis of jacket
    - Transportation analysis of jacket with pre-stress
    Import the zip file into a new Sesam Manager job. A document explaining the analyses is also included.

  • Earthquake Analysis of Jacket

    Jacket_4Leg_Earthquake.jpg

    This example involves using Sesam Manager, GeniE, Wajac, Sestra, Prepost and Framework. Import the zip file into a new Sesam Manager job. A document explaining the analyses is included.
    The example demonstrates how to run an earthquake analysis based on the Sesam Manager job template TwoAnalysesAndMerge. The merging of Sestra results files is facilitated by Sesam Manager through automatic creation of the required Prepost input.

  • GeniE

  • GeniE Snack Pack

    Snackpack.png

    The purpose of the GeniE snack pack is to give you access to a number of utilities and special functions not yet available from the graphical user interface of GeniE.

    For the advanced user it is also possible to learn from these script files, for example by making your own versions of them or even by adapting them for new type of operations.

  • Couple Beam with Shell Model Using Support Rigid Link

    Couple_beam_shell.jpg

    This example demonstrates how to use the support rigid link functionality of GeniE to couple a beam element with a shell/plate model. This is typically used when a beam is partly modelled as a beam element and partly using plate/shell elements.

  • Support Rigid Link: Dependent and Released Rotations and More

    SupportRigidLinkAlternatives.jpg

    This example demonstrates by four different models alternative use of the Support Rigid Link: "Include all nodes in region, released rotations", "Include all nodes in region, dependent rotations" and "Include only nodes on support points and curves in region". The last option is shown with two different sets of support curves to demonstrate the maximum level of control of dependent nodes.

    Follow the instructions in the ReadMe file that also brielfy explains the difference in results.
