PIPELINE (OFFPIPE)

 

OFFPIPE is a sophisticated, finite element method based computer program. It has been developed specifically for the modeling and structural analysis of nonlinear problems encountered in the installation and operation of offshore pipelines.

 

Powerful pipe-lay analysis software capabilities
Analysis capabilities include:

  • static and dynamic pipe layinganalyses for many laybarge and stinger configurations, both conventional and J-lay.

  • pipelay initiation, abandonment and recovery analyses;

  • calculates static pipe stresses, span lengths and deflections for irregular seabed scenarios;

  • static davit-lift analyses for conventional riser installations and subsea tie-ins
