3D Finite Element Modelling
AS Mosley uses ANSYS general purpose finite element package to perform detailed 3D finite element analysis (FEA).
Detailed local finite element models represent the exact geometry and include all interfaces and boundary conditions. FEA is performed to investigate the stresses, strains and deflections in a structural model.
AS Mosley offers FEA using ANSYS for:
- Structural Assessment
- Fatigue Assessment
- Thermal Assessment
We work with our clients to ensure their equipment meets operational requirements and is fully optimised through analysis performed as part of the design process to ensure components meet required codes and standards.
Some of the key 3D finite element projects AS Mosley has worked on are listed below:
- GE Oil and Gas (now Baker Hughes); Analysis to determine the structural capacity of a 16” high angle release connector (16" HA-CH) for use in open water riser systems.
- Helix Energy Solutions, the design and analysis of a safety joint to protect a weak tree during riser-based intervention operations.
- BP, Analysis to determine the structural capacity and fatigue properties of a 13 5/8” un-preloaded wellhead, to support abandonment operations.
- Interventek, 3D Structural Analysis of a 6 3/8” 15000 PSI In-Riser Revolution Valve. See full case study here.
