AKSELOS INTEGRA

SIMULATION AT THE SPEED OF THOUGHT™

AKSELOS INTEGRA USES PATENTED, NEXT-GENERATION MATHEMATICS

The concept of a digital twin isn’t a new one; there are numerous successful versions on the market. But they all have one limitation in common – scale.

The numerical method used to create many of the digital twins on the market today – Finite Element Analysis (FEA) – isn’t capable of modeling large-scale assets in the level of detail needed to understand structural conditions and enable predictive analytics.

FEA has been in use since the 60s, and it doesn’t live up to the expectations of modern technology.

The science behind Akselos Integra is next-generation. The patented algorithm – Reduced Basis FEA – comes from 15 years of research in leading research institutes including the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, and is under license from MIT. It has the power to model assets of huge scale, from a bridge, to a production platform or even a space station.

Our technology brings science fiction into reality.

Master complex engineering systems

With powerful yet user-friendly engineering simulations, every engineer can now gain insights into complex systems.

Akselos Integra provides an incredibly powerful user interface, called Akselos Modeler, to assemble high-resolution simulations for large, heavy industry systems. Every engineer in the team can quickly set up many different scenarios for very large systems.

Large 3D models that can be updated in minutes

Engineers don’t want to waste time dealing with the complexities of preparing a CAD model for simulation.

With Akselos Integra, engineers can create fully meshed, component-based models that can be quickly modified.
Condition-based modeling can be achieved in seconds by switching a pristine component for a component that models defects and/or damage. Entire topology changes are possible in a matter of minutes.

In-depth, multi-scenario asset analysis

Akselos components contain adjustable parameters that define geometric and physical properties, loads, and other boundary conditions.

Within the Akselos Modeler, engineers can seamlessly adjust model parameters. The system load conditions, geometrical or physical properties can be changed in just a few clicks, and a new high fidelity simulation obtained in seconds. The model parameter space can quickly be explored in a way that is impractical with traditional simulation techniques.

Structural Integrity of floating assets

Perform detailed hydrodynamic analysis of floating assets. Import wave-loading data from industry standard software (e.g. WAMIT, WADAM). Post-process stress data to perform fatigue or buckling checks. Generate reports based on class society standards.

Structural integrity of fixed offshore assets

Hydrodynamic loading modules based on Morison equation impose wave loads on structures. Model soil/pile interactions with nonlinear springs. Calculate stress response, or vibration modes. Post-process load cases with standards-base checks for strength and fatigue (ISO 19902, API RP2a, etc.)

See More

Wind energy applications

Layered shell elements enable detailed analysis of composites used in blades. Dynamic stochastic modeling of many load cases using fast cloud-based solvers enable efficient analysis of offshore wind structures. Detailed models enable high-fidelity analysis of stresses in joints.

See More

Pressure vessel and pipeline analysis

Detailed models of assets, with a mixture of beam, solid, and shell elements. Incorporate condition-based data (cracks, corrosion, damage, encrustation, etc.) in the model to enable structural integrity insights into the current state of the asset. Perform standards-based checks of equipment, with nonlinear analysis (e.g. plasticity, contact) where needed.

See More

Rotary machine analysis

Perform fully detailed analysis of rotating machines, e.g. 3D model of an entire compressor stage rather than localized models of one or two blades. Modeling an entire asset avoids the need for periodic boundary conditions, and hence can accurately incorporate condition-based data (cracks, corrosion, damage, etc.) into the model since defects do not occur periodically. Impose centrifugal loading, aero loads, thermal stress, and nonlinear analysis such as plasticity and contact.
