Design safe foundations for offshore structures using SACS Pile Structure Design. This helps expedite compliance to international design codes for oil and gas, and wind turbine platform structures subject to environmental and mechanical loads. Reduce the fatigue risk of foundations by determining response from cyclic environmental loads.
Efficiently create high-quality, safe designs with the easy-to-use environment in SACS Pile Structure.
• Expedite your analysis via a fully coupled pile-structure interaction analysis of offshore structures with multiple fixed supports in the integrated SACS environment
• Increase safety by assessing soil capacity to withstand operating and extreme structural loads
• Efficiently linearize foundations for dynamic analysis through automatic generation of foundation superelements
• Improve safety in seismic zones by accounting for reduced soil capacity due to liquefaction effects
SACS Pile Structure Design is available as an add-on module for any of the SACS Offshore Structure suites.

SACS Pile Structure Design Capabilities
Automate offshore structural workflows
Manage multiple analyses with customizable templates working from a common structural model. Automatically pass data from one analysis step to another, incorporating industry-standard methodologies. Simplify management of large, complex models for design exploration with automated workflows.
Calculate soil liquefaction
Account for reduced soil capacity in seismic zones through soil stiffness property variation with earthquake loading.
Model foundations using superelements
Accurately model coupling effects of displacements and rotations through generation of a fully coupled 6X6 matrix for each pile group. Use pile super elements to linearize a piled foundation for modal analysis.
Model soil strata and properties
Analyze the behavior of pile supported structures subject to one or more static load conditions. Apply user specified pile/soil response to axial, lateral, and torsional loads applied at the pilehead through nonlinear load deflection curves.
