Bentley.STAAD.Offshore v03.00.01.02 1CD
STAAD.Pro is a general purpose structural analysis and design tool that is being used to design offshore structures. STAAD.Offshore allows users create wave loading and transport loads on offshore structures. It can handle pipes, rectangular/square tubes, and open sections such as Ibeams and channels, or other structural shapes by judicious selection of the wave force coefficients. A typical scenario is an offshore jacket structure as shown in Figure. The offshore jacket can be subjected to many types of loads including wave loads and several transport ship motions.
STAAD.Offshore provides the user with options to generate wave loads using eight different wave generation theories. The height of the wave and period of the waves have to be provided in STAAD.Offshore.
STAAD.Offshore is a powerful suite of pre- and post processor modules for the STAAD.Pro structural analysis and design program. Comprised of two primary modules, waveload and transport, you additionally have the option of carrying out design code checks to the American Petroleum Institute (API) recommended practice for planning, designing, and constructing fixed offshore platforms with the STAAD.Pro API code check module.
