The Bentley Systems announces enhancements to its latest release of SACS CONNECT Edition. This is an offshore structural analysis application that offers fully automated and integrated 3D modeling, analysis and design to efficiently manage large, complex models for the evolving digitalization in the offshore market.
The new release of SACS includes capabilities that help eliminate disjointed workflows and data, enhances interoperability with other applications, ensures safe structural performance during extreme events, and removes the need for a separate finite element analysis (FEA) application. Also, this extended analytical cloud services for SACS Wind Turbine with the help of this turbine engineers can perform multiple wind turbine structural analyses in parallel in minutes rather than days.
Bentley’s SACS CONNECT Edition now offers:
A unique, combined results database which saves time and eliminates disjointed workflows through combining the results of multiple design phases from independent analyses into a single unified visualization to enable holistic interrogation and design review across all phases simultaneously. A new, advanced collapse solver for non-linear analysis and design ensures the more realistic structural performance during extreme events, such as hurricanes, and allows for more accurate predictions in regard to lateral torsional buckling.
The Joint meshing and automatic stress concentration factor (SCF) extraction which mainly to speed up non-tubular fatigue joint design. With the use of this new advanced technology FEA in SACS, users no longer need a separate FEA application, such as ANSYS. This technology has merged all-in-one application saves a tremendous amount of time, money, and eliminates the need for multiple software application investments.
Intra-operability between SACS – Auto PIPE with the use of this technology up to 90 percent reduction in project non-conformances now using Bentley’s ISM technology it also delivers shorter design cycles. This replaces traditional manual methods by electronically transferring pipe support loads to the structural model and integrated structural – piping models for more accurate design loading and engineering collaboration.
