Accidents inevitably accompany offshore industry. The most typical causes of accidents include equipment failure, personnel mistakes, and extreme natural impacts like seismic activity, ice fields, hurricanes, etc.
Therefore analysis of most probable accident scenarios, featuring extreme static or dynamic loads, is essential to assure high reliability of offshore components and structures.
Nowatec has performed a simulation of the subsea manifold structure subjected to the extreme accidental load. Sophisticated computation methods have resulted in realistic structure behaviour and delivered detailed information about structure exertion during and after the accident.
Based on sophisticated simulations Nowatec documents the effects of accidents in a realistic way and delivers detailed information about structure strength during and after the accident.
