  OFFPIPE Assistant Introduction

OFFPIPE Assistant is developed to assist pipeline engineers in the design and analysis of subsea pipeline laying especially for OFFPIPE users. The powerful finite element solver has been fine-tuned to provide an excellent tool for realistic simulation of the pipe-laying process. Feel tired to adjust laybarge and stinger profile in OFFPIPE for a good result? Just in several seconds, OFFPIPE Assistant helps you to get perfect laybarge & stinger profile and tension which produce minimum pipeline stress by computing and comparing hundreds of FEM analysis results.

  OFFPIPE Assistant Functions
Precise laybarge and stinger modeling

It is easy for users using OFFPIPE Assistant to construct precise model of laybarge and stinger, which can be saved as model file and read by the software directly in the future. Users can get roller coordinates corresponding to the bending radius of pipeline specified by users rapidly. This function makes it possible to build a laybarge model database of a company, which will be called directly in analysis. This type of model building improves the efficiency, precision and convenience of laybarge and stinger model construction compared with that of OFFPIPE.

Finite element analysis for normal pipe laying.

Just like OFFPIPE, it is a basic function of OFFPIPE Assistant to conduct static finite element analysis for normal pipe laying. According to engineering parameters input by users, the software can provide FEA results rapidly. Due to focus of software, OFFPIPE Assistant does not provide modules of initial laying, abandon/recovery and dynamic analysis.

Optimized laying parameters selection

This function allows users to obtain optimized laybarge configuration with minimum total stress within the specified pipeline bending radius and tension scope, according to FEA results.

  OFFPIPE Assistant Key Features
FEA core highly consistent with OFFPIPE

OFFPIPE Assistant has a powerful finite element solver which has been fine-tuned to provide excellent analysis for realistic simulation of pipe-laying process. We promise that the FEA results of OFFPIPE Assistant is highly consistent with that of OFFPIPE. User can verify it within the software by inducing OFFPIPE result into OFFPIPE Assistant to compare with the result of OFFPIPE Assistant itself.

Laybarge & stinger library

OFFPIPE Assistant can construct precise model of laybarge and stinger, which can be saved as model file and read by the software directly in the future. Users can get roller coordinates corresponding to the bending radius of pipeline specified by users rapidly. It is easy to use this function to build a laybarge model library of a company. We provide laybarge model building service.
