Ocean Engineer| Hydrodynamic Analysis: The task includes generating the RAOs for different vessel configurations using 3D diffraction tool Hydrostar. The RAOs were generated for multibody vessel in side by side configuration(LNG FPSO with an alongside moored LNG carrier) for different draft conditions(fully loaded and ballast). The generated RAOs were used for mooring analysis software. Static and dynamic analysis of mooring lines: Static and dynamic analysis of mooring line is carried out to check the feasibility of the offloading of two products together in a side moored configuration. The analysis is performed using software tool Ariane7. Preliminary equipment selection was done based on the static equilibrium analysis. Detailed time domain analysis was performed for the final selection of mooring system. The time varying behavior of mooring system was checked to ensure that the line tension, vessel excursion and anchor line touchdown point are within the safe limit. Static and dynamic analysis of Flexible Riser: In house program developed using Python script to perform static and dynamic analysis of Underhose Riser for Single Point Mooring buoy(SPM). Static structural analysis of crane pedestal: The static structural analysis performed to check the adequacy of pedestal column during operational/non-operational condition. Finite Element static analysis has been carried out for various loading condition by using general purpose FE software ANSYS APDL 15. Modal Analysis of drilling mud tank agitator shaft: The modal analysis if performed for rotating agitator shaft-impeller assembly to find of natural frequency of the system. The modification to the structural system is proposed based on modal analysis to enhance the natural frequency. The analysis is performed using 3D nonlinear static and dynamic FEA tool ISYMOST-NSO.

Engineering Analyst| (1.5 years) Chandigarh| www.oceaneering.com Extreme and global Analysis of Subsea Umbilical: The extreme andglobal analysis is performed on subsea umbilicals in extreme and operational environmental conditions. The analysis is performed in OrcaFlex 9.7. The bend stiffener is designed for umbilicals using different loading cases by using a tool OrcaBend. The umbilicals were modeled and analyzed for different vessel draft and wave headings in different configurations. The different umbilical configurations(steep wave, lazy wave, steep wave, lazy wave etc.) are generated by incorporating buoyancy module properties at respective nodal locations. The analysis is performed in regular and irregular waves in time domain. The result derived insures that the umbilicals are not breaching their respective design limit of axial tension, bending curvature and shear at critical locations. Local stress Analysis of Subsea Umbilical cross section: Local stress Analysis is performed to determine the strength and performance of cross-section against external loads and establish the stiffness parameters required for global analysis. The load capacity curve(allowable tension versus bend curvature plot) for installation and operational condition and Cross-sectional bending and axial stiffness parameters are generated as a result from local stress analysis. The cross section is analyzed using the non-linear finite element software Uflex2d. This enables the umbilical structure to be modeled under a combination of internal and external hydrostatic pressure, tension, torsion, bending, and external contact loads. Internally generated loads due to sliding contact and friction behavior between individual component parts are also represented. Thermal Analysis of Subsea Umbilical: The thermal analysis is performed to evaluate the electrical and thermal performance of Power and Control Umbilical. The analysis determines the heat generated by the MV cables within the Umbilical due to electrical resistance losses and subsequent temperature levels reached by the metallic and plastic components and their sub-components. The analysis is performed in Induction heating module of COMSOL Multiphysics. The analysis ensures that the umbilical components are within the respective design temperature limit.
