DNV GL launches stability analysis tool

23 Jun 2016

DNV GL is now offering a new stability analysis solution that allows for hydrodynamic and stability analysis on one common model.

The new Sesam HydroD version five software for floating structures, aims to give naval and offshore engineers more control over their projects.

“This is a huge step forward for Sesam. It is the first release of Sesam HydroD on our new software platform. This will improve the user experience and the efficiency of analysis,” says Are Føllesdal Tjønn, DNV GL’s software CEO.

The design and engineering of floating structures relies heavily on both hydrodynamic and stability analyses, which optimise safety in various environmental conditions.

These two analyses usually been performed with separate models and software system, which can cause inefficiencies and raises the cost of the design process, possibly leading to errors or inaccuracies during the analyses.

DNV GL has now launched the new Sesam HydroD version 5, makes it possible for naval architects and offshore engineers to run a stability analysis in a user-friendly interface, on the same model that they are using for hydrodynamic analysis.

The system aims to save time and cost, reduce errors, and also gives them unparalleled oversight over their data with a powerful solver and many options that increase flexibility and control with tailored solutions.
