PSE PETROLEUM STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING® SOFTWARE
In the PSE Petroleum Structural Engineering® software, vessel dynamic motions are defined according to API 4F Specification for Drilling and Well Servicing Structures.
The inertial forces due to the vessel dynamic motion as well as radial, tangential and translational forces due to the acceleration of masses attached to the drilling structures have a significant influence on design and reliability.
In various production wells, the offshore drilling structures are located on top decks of vessels, semisubmersible or floating hulls. Vessel motion includes roll, pitch and yaw rotations and heave, sway and surge translations.
The PSE software computes the inertial forces due to the vessel dynamic motion as well as radial, tangential and translational forces due to the acceleration of masses attached to the drilling structures. These forces have a significant influence on the structural design and reliability of offshore structures.
The PSE software accepts three types of user input in order to estimate the inertial forces induced by the vessel dynamic motions:
– Linear displacements, angular rotations and time periods
– Linear and angular velocities and accelerations
– Linear accelerations at two points in the vessel which are converted to linear and angular accelerations by the program.
The advanced structural analysis of the PSE software allows the user to achieve specialized analyses crucial to any projects related to the oil and gas industry.
We develop our structural software in a collaborative spirit with our customers to create innovative structural technologies tailored to their needs.
Metric, imperial and mixed units systems are allowed and can be modified at any time. Reports are printed according to any unit system.
The software is a technology built on a powerful user-friendly interface offering comprehensive analysis options and intuitive modeling features.
Our technical team consist of experienced structural engineers providing relevant and effective support.
The PSE software is currently available in both English and French and can be translated to any other languages. This includes all documentation, tutorials and user guides.
