Revolutionize Floating Offshore Wind Design with Akselos’ Advanced RB-FEA Technology
Achieve greater efficiency, performance, and durability in your offshore wind projects
Transform Your Design Process: Experience the Advantages of RB-FEA Workflows for Superior Floating Offshore Wind Design
Detail & Accuracy
Speed: RB-FEA can model up to 1000 times faster than legacy solutions.
Detail & Accuracy: There is no limitation on the detailaccuracy of a model in an RB-FEA workflow.
Scale: RB-FEA enables consideration of much larger models – up to
100 million degrees of freedom.
Design Modification: RB-FEA models can be rapidly changed and resolved
to reflect current or future conditions
Speed: FEA cannot model large structures quickly.
Detail & Accuracy: FEA cannot model large assets in full detail and accuracy, slowing down designs and causing designers to miss optimisation opportunities.
Scale: FEA-based workflows cannot simulate
large models accurately.
Design Modification: FEA-based workflows cannot be adapted to reflect current conditions.
Instead, they must be rebuilt and resolved to calculate a new solution.
Revolutionize Your Floating Offshore Wind Designs with Component-Based Optimization
The rapid scaling of floating offshore wind energy is essential to achieve net-zero targets, necessitating the mass industrialization of floating offshore wind foundations to significantly reduce costs.
Traditional FEA-based computational workflows hinder designers, as they involve time-consuming processes, such as creating CAD models and running FEA simulations on a coarse mesh to pinpoint critical areas. Altering the model requires going back to the original CAD and starting anew, delaying progress.
In contrast, Akselos’ groundbreaking RB-FEA technology offers a more streamlined approach for floating offshore wind design engineering. With RB-FEA, designers can use a single, detailed model and mesh for the entire structure, enabling faster simulations and superior structural integrity. Designers begin with CAD models of components, mesh them as needed, and assemble them into a unified mesh within the Akselos environment.
RB-FEA empowers designers to explore numerous design alternatives at the level specified by industry standards, without the need for submodels. By evaluating hundreds of design options against diverse turbine and site conditions, designers can create optimal floating offshore wind turbine designs at an unparalleled speed, maximizing energy output and driving innovation.
