Download Recorded GetSmart! Webinar: SmartMarine® 3D Rule-based Joints from Modeling to Manufacturing
The GetSmart! Webinar Series turns to offshore with “SmartMarine 3D Rule-based Joints from Modeling to Manufacturing.” Learn how Intergraph’s solution for marine assets encompasses all the processes from basic design through detailing and manufacturing of complex joints that are typical on offshore jackets.
Compared to previous generation solutions or any of the best structural design tools available today, SmartMarine 3D’s rule-based joints enable dramatic schedule reduction for geometric or raw material changes on jackets and tubular trusses. Primary structure nodes are often geometrically complex. Complexity creates fabrication problems, i.e. welding or dimensional control. Typically, nodes include cans and incoming ring stiffeners are possibly reinforced with stubs. Any change in node coordinates or tube dimensions or any introduction of reinforcements induces the recalculation of the node to fit parameters that result from dedicated analyses and decades of field experience.
This webinar, originally recorded April 12, 2011, focuses on nodes usually present on fixed steel drilling/production platforms but can be easily deployed in different fields, such as jackets/towers supporting wind generators. See demonstrations of node rule-driven re-calculation resulting from dimensional or topological changes. Finally, as with other SmartMarine structural business objects, the tubular built-ups representing legs, cans, beams, and stubs are sent to production with related technical data.
