Numerical Modelling and Simulation

Modelling and simulation are crucial part of all stages of design. Quoceant engineers have have extensive understanding of the usefulness and limitations of different modelling approaches which has been built over many years of validating designs through testing and real-world operation. This highly transferable skill has wide application, some examples are:

Component Analysis including Finite Element Analysis

Analysis including fluid-structure interaction simulation using both Coupled Eulerian-Lagrangian and Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamic methods, strength and over-life performance modelling with expertise in fatigue driven structures, modelling of impact events, such as ship collision. 

Full System Modelling 

Machine dynamics and control interactions, offshore operations modelling, mooring design and analysis, load characterisation, concept evaluation and parameter optimisation.

 

Operations & Maintenance Effectiveness Modelling 

Statistically based estimation of availability & maintenance costs based on reliability, operating criteria and sea conditions.

Lifecycle Costing and Cost of Energy Models

Detailed CAPEX modelling, parametric modelling to assess economic impact of future design options, economic learning models including benchmarking with other sectors and the supply chain, and wider macro economic modelling including job growth. Our cost of energy modelling suite includes full uncertainty analysis. 

 Quoceant have expertise in the following software: 

  • Finite Element Analysis - Abaqus, SolidWorks (COSMOS)

  • Complex Hydrodynamic Modelling & Analysis - OrcaFlex

  • General Analysis and Bespoke Modelling - Mathcad, MatLab & SimuLink, Excel (Visual Basic)
