DNV Software has released a new software, Sesam GeniE 6.4, which provides one single data model for offshore and maritime design and analysis, the classification society announced on Tuesday.

With Sesam GeniE 6.4, design engineers can use a single model for design, modification and life extension. This new version increases efficiency and design quality results, according to Ole Jan Nekstad, DNV Software Product Director for Sesam.

“This release will enable users to do more, as well as to do it more easily,” says Nekstad. “In addition, they will have better control with higher quality of calculations.”

Design and analysis of offshore and maritime structures has previously involved the use of several different models where data from one model must be manually transferred to others – a costly and time-consuming process, according to DNV.

Part of the integrated one-model solution allows tension and compression analysis inside Sesam GeniE to reduce costs in separate systems. The software is able to work inside a consistent user interface, such as between pile and leg as well as the disconnection of beams and plates. “This is a major timesaver in for example life extension analysis for customers who use supporting programs,” DNV said in a written statement.

“Our offshore engineering solution has unique capabilities in an integrated environment for structural modelling, environmental load calculations, structural response analysis and engineering evaluation and redesign,” says DNV Software Managing Director Are Føllesdal Tjønn.
