MORE ABOUT THIS CASE STUDY

Shiploaders transfer heavy loads onto ships around the clock for years on end. As a result, they are prone to cracks, strains and stresses that, if not correctly dealt with, can put the whole structure at risk. Operators are under pressure to maintain their ageing assets and keep them running safely. Therefore, they are always looking for ways to accurately understand asset integrity.

Akselos’ simulation software can create a detailed model of the asset. With the software’s component-based modelling approach, engineers can incorporate relevant inspection data such as cracks, corrosion, and damage into the Akselos digital twin model for a level of detailed analysis that today’s conventional finite element analysis tools cannot offer.
