Offloading systems

Below is a list of links to OrcaFlex example topics. Within each topic are a number of examples which each comprise one or more simulation files, a description pdf file, workspace files and sometimes other supporting files. The files for each example are zipped for easy download. The simulation files can be opened and viewed with the demonstration version of OrcaFlex.

H01 Chinese lantern

Risers descend from the underside of a moored CALM buoy to its base on the seabed in a Chinese Lantern configuration.

H02 Jacket to semisub

A cable catenary is suspended between a semi-submersible rig and fixed jacket. It is analysed in a random sea.

H03 Floating and stowed lines

A floating hose, attached to the stern of an FSU (Floating Storage Unit), is stowed by curling it around and attaching the free end to the vessel side. Interaction with the vessel sides needs to be considered. The hose end is released, and during the analysis, the protective chain at the stern of the FSU breaks.
