Offshore oil vessels are massive, and with the freight they carry, there’s no room for error. Oil spills can be catastrophic, so it’s important the companies that produce these vessels such as Inocean understand how they will perform. However, their size makes them expensive and time-consuming to prototype.
That’s why Inocean uses simulation. They perform non-linear structural analysis with NX Nastran to understand potential ship collisions, for example. NX allows them to reduce their number of CAE tools, which saves them money and increases their team’s productivity. Their simulation process is now streamlined thanks to NX.
