TIME DOMAIN ANALYSIS AND CFD Main outline of presentation




Why analyses?  Offshore lifts compared to onshore lifts Acergys strategy  Computational Fluid Dynamics: ANSYS CFX  Time domain analyses: SIMO Some examples  ANSYS CFX  Ordinary lifting operations  Special operations

TIME DOMAIN ANALYSIS AND CFD Why analyses?




Motion of floating vessel  Environmental forces  Change of stability condition of vessel during the lift Entering or exit water-air boundary  Density of air: 1.3 kg/m3  Density of water: 1025.0 kg/m3  Stability of the lifted object! Hydrodynamic forces on the lifted object  Waves and current will excite the object

TIME DOMAIN ANALYSIS AND CFD Why analyses?




The dynamic effects in an offshore environment is of the same magnitude as the static weight and need to be understood DNVs guidelines for analyses:  DNV-RP-H103 Modelling and Analyses of Marine Operations Basically two ways for analyses of the lift through the splash zone: Simplified method  Time domain analyses

TIME DOMAIN ANALYSIS AND CFD Why analyses?




Simplified analyses:  Covers only the wave zone crossing  Highly simplified model  High level of conservatism Time domain analyses  All phases in the operation may be analysed  A complex model representing the whole system  Less conservatism in the analyses
Crucial input for both kind of analyses:


Hydrodynamic properties for the lifted object

Hydrodynamic properties, traditional approach  Simplified empirical results  Scaled model tests DNV-RP-H103:  CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) may be used to establish hydrodynamic properties ANSYS CFX has been used in Acergy since 2007 A few examples:

TIME DOMAIN ANALYSIS AND CFD ACERGY Solution- Conclusion




SIMO + ANSYS CFX  All phases in an offshore lift can be analysed  Complicated operations in general can be analysed Design loads and effects more accurately estimated Increased understanding of the operations Increased weather window => reduced installation time
