This in-depth, industry-specific course covers a wide variety of Abaqus functionality that can help overcome the unique analysis challenges commonly faced by the offshore oil and gas industry, such as Pipe-soil interaction, Abaqus/Aqua capabilities to model wave, buoyancy, current & wind loading and Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) approach in Abaqus/Explicit.

About this course


2 days

Course Objective:

The offshore oil and gas industry has some unique analysis challenges. Complex loading conditions, often highly nonlinear stress states and extensive contact requires advanced FEA software and experienced analysts to be successful. This course was designed by SIMULIA UK in support of their offshore customers to provide them a more in-depth, industry-specific training. The workshops in this course are completely new and were developed from customer applications.

The course covers the following topics:

  • Review nonlinear material behavior (metal plasticity and hyperelasticity)
  • Capabilities of Abaqus element types in general
  • Specific element discussions include drag chain, pipe, PSI and ITT elements
  • Pipe-soil interaction, including lateral buckling of a pipe line on a seabed
  • Abaqus/Aqua capabilities in Abaqus/Standard to model wave, buoyancy, current & wind loading
  • Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian (CEL) approach in Abaqus/Explicit

Who Should Attend?

This course is recommended for engineers with experience using Abaqus who work in the Oil and Gas industry.
