Working smarter by integrating stress and piping information in one 3D model!

Traditionally, pipe design and pipe stress are performed in two separate models. Ensuring that the two models are aligned is time-consuming.

Focus Engineering has made a tool to integrate design information between E3D and Caesar II, saving time, reducing the possibilities for errors, and freeing up the stress engineer to do actual stress design.

Pipe Support structures are typically quite simple. However, what they may lack in complexity they more than make up for in quantity. For the Anna Nery FPSO, Focus Engineering recently designed seven topside modules, with a total of more than 7000 pipe support structures. Thanks to Focus Pipe Support Calculation program (FPSC), most of this was handled by our Pipe Support design team, freeing up time for our Structural Department.

What can go wrong if the Electro Instrument & Telecom discipline is left out from project-start?

At the beginning of the project, there is a battle for the available space on a module. All disciplines will have most of the available space and this space is very limited. In some cases, the module must be expanded to allow all disciplines to place their equipment, and if a discipline is excluded from this work process, we may end up with a module that is not large enough for the job for which it is intended. So, what can go wrong?

Why it is important for Electro Instrument & Telecom (EIT) engineers to be involved from the very beginning of an engineering project?

An engineering project is usually performed in 3 phases. The 3 phases are 30% – 60% and a 90% milestone reviews of the 3D model. These percentages (30% – 60%-90%) reflect a percentage of completed project, not a percentage of maturity of each discipline. For EIT’s part, we can say that we are usually about 30% finished when a 60% review is held, depending on how extensive the EIT contract is. So, what does this mean?
