Abstract

The article presents calculations of the strength of a support frame Skid Cooling units used on oil rigs. The complexity of the equipment does not allow for efficient FEM modeling of such structures. It indicates how to the simplify the model so that the calculations can accepted by the American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

Abstract

The article presents the calculations of Cooling Skid units used on oil rigs required by the specific provisions of the classification society American Bureau of Shipping (ABS). Stringent requirements for equipment intended for offshore drilling research relates to the strength of the environmental loads such as wind loads and strength check points in towing and lifting hooks. The article describes how the simulation calculations are carried out to meet the criteria set for by the classification society American Bureau of Shipping (ABS).

Abstract

The article presents an approach to evaluate and reduce the effort of the derivative pipeline in a water turbine of a hydroelectric power station in its vulnerable spots. Potential places of the biggest effort of the structure, as well as the coefficient of displacement and safety factor related to them were identified using FEM numerical method. Pipeline reinforcement was designed and made based on FEM analysis and non-destructive tests.

Abstract

Numerical simulations of air blast loading in the near-field acting on the ground have been performed. A simplified blast model based on empirical blast loading data representing spherical and hemispherical explosive shapes has been simulated. Conwep is an implementation of the empirical blast models presented by Kingery and Bulmash, which is also implemented in the commercial code LS-DYNA based on work done by Rahnders-Pehrson and Bannister. This makes it possible to simulate blast loads acting on structures representing spherical and hemispherical explosive shapes of TNT with reasonable computational effort as an alternative to the SPH and Eulerian model. The CPU time for the simplified blast model is however considerably shorter and may still be useful in time consuming concept studies. Reasonable numerical results using reasonable model sizes can be achieved not only for modelling near-field explosions in air but most areas of geotechnical. Calculation was compared with blast SPH and Eulerian model.
