New SACS Decommissioning Offering that Automates Cutting Plans for Offshore Structures Is Among Highlights of Latest Release

2.5.2017 20:22  

Bentley’s SACS now includes an integrated analysis and design solution for the complete lifecycle of offshore structures including construction, transportation, in-place, and decommissioning. This new capability enables engineers to reduce heavy offshore structures into manageable pieces when removing them from complex working environments.

Phil Christensen, SVP, analytical modeling, at Bentley Systems, said, “When the price of oil dropped by more than 50 percent, engineering companies in the oil and gas industry had to rapidly adapt to sustain their businesses. This disruption has created a very challenging market in which technology plays a key role in adjusting to the changed circumstances.”

This latest advancement in SACS reinforces Bentley’s commitment to adapt its offerings to meet the changing requirements of the offshore energy industry. According to a recent report by IHS Markit, there has been a significant rise in the number of planned decommissioning projects, which is attributed to global economic conditions and assets in mature fields reaching their end of life. As decommissioning carries similar risks and challenges to marine construction, special consideration must be applied to the safety, environmental, economic, and social aspects of any project.

The SACS decommissioning capabilities automate the process and allow engineers to determine optimal cutting plans to meet decommissioning project requirements, such as structure weight for lift and transport. Users fully control the structural weight through change in elevation and can apply automatic cutting of the structure at user-defined elevations. The sum of forces for any elevation can be reviewed graphically or in tabular reports.

The new SACS release also includes improved intraoperability with AutoPIPE, an enhanced GUI for joint meshing, and other key advancements including:

  • Rectangular hollow section (RHS) joint design
  • Full-iterative solution for P-Delta analysis
  • Wind loading based on API 4F functionality
  • SACS-FAST non-integrated interface for wind turbine analysis
  • Enhanced collapse analysis

With integrated workflows spanning AutoPIPE and SACS, piping design for offshore structures can be completed in hours instead of weeks. Workflows to add pipe loads to offshore structures improve efficiency and provide accurate analysis results. Importing piping geometry from AutoPIPE into SACS enables the design of secondary steel and piping connection supports on the primary offshore structure.

Users can perform combined stress, and pipe and stress analysis after they have imported piping connections and the structure from SACS into AutoPIPE. Moreover, importing support reaction results from AutoPIPE to SACS for structural analysis can save hundreds of hours of manual data entry. Lastly, completing the design and analysis with realistic models results in potential costs savings and improved risk mitigation.

Engineers designing FPSO topsides have indicated they can spend 40 percent of their time developing detailed finite element models of the complex joints in these structures. SACS Precede drawing options enable easy creation of plate surfaces from any orientation, improving efficiency for meshed joint generation. Additionally, the SACS methodology eliminates the requirement to model joints externally to determine SCFs or perform fatigue analysis or detailed strength analysis. A SACS finite element mesh, a model that captures complex connection behaviors, is fully integrated with SACS beam elements to enable simple and powerful workflows. Engineers can easily create meshes within seconds, for any complex joint, all within a single interface, and save hundreds of resource hours in manual calculations. The simplified process enables completion without requiring specialist finite element expertise.

About SACS
SACS is an integrated finite element structural analysis package of applications for the design of offshore structures. The automated workflows and graphical interactive redesign capabilities improve project efficiency. SACS includes the latest offshore structural design standards for offshore structure compliance. The unified analysis environment enables the efficient exploration of alternatives and optimization. By using Bentley’s scenario services cloud computing capability, users can drastically decrease the run time for analysis types requiring thousands of time history analysis for fatigue and strength design for offshore wind turbine platforms. SACS has a comprehensive interface to Bentley’s ProjectWise application allowing users to collaborate on projects from multiple locations.

<i>Going Digital</i>: Bentley Systems Advances Reality Modeling to Extend the Scope of Engineering and Surveying Value

5.4.2017 17:31  

Combination of New ContextCapture Services and ProjectWise ContextShare Comprehensively Deliver Fidelity, Accessibility, Scalability, and Shareability

Houston, TX – SPAR 3D Expo & Conference – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, demonstrated at SPAR 3D Expo & Conference (SPAR) new ContextCapture offerings for reality modeling that increase joint opportunities in surveying and engineering. ContextCapture capabilities now include cloud processing services, a mobile app, and photo planning for Bentley’s applications. ContextShare extends Bentley’s ProjectWise connected data environment to securely manage, share, and stream reality meshes, and their input sources, across project teams and applications. Navigator Web is a new web application that delivers high-performance streaming of very large reality meshes through the browser to desktop or mobile devices.

For infrastructure project delivery, reality modeling captures the actual context of infrastructure projects through photos and/or scans, creating engineering-ready reality meshes for design modeling, analytical modeling, and construction modeling. During asset performance, as-operated reality meshes can serve to immersively geo-coordinate the alignment of these digital engineering models with right-time inputs from connected IoT technologies. Accordingly, reality modeling extends the scope for engineers to add value to include “conceptioneering” and “constructioneering” for capital projects, and “inspectioneering” and “productioneering” for operating assets. These use-case benefits of “continuous surveying” in turn provide new value opportunities for surveyors throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

Bureau Veritas, with 66,000 employees around the globe, is a world leader in testing, inspection, and certification of infrastructure assets. Thomas Daubigny, Bureau Veritas Chief Digital Officer, said, “Reality modeling is becoming pivotal in many industries as it fundamentally changes the management of assets, reinventing the handling of inspections, maintenance, and training, while opening doors to brand new services. Bureau Veritas is playing a key role in leveraging digital engineering models, implementing acquisition, and classifying objects based on its expertise on the asset, and ultimately operating the model as a data gatekeeper. The new Bentley ContextCapture cloud processing service will provide us the flexibility and power to accelerate the deployment of such innovations to our clients.”

CEO Greg Bentley said, “Last year at SPAR I described what I believed to be the significant potential of reality modeling for improved infrastructure engineering, in particular, from continuous surveying enabled by simple digital photography and UAVs, but that was then based only on our own experience. And there could have been resistance from survey professionals concerned that this more accessible technology might jeopardize their return on investments in laser scanning specialization, for example. It is gratifying to report now that in the intervening year, reality modeling has ‘gone mainstream’ globally, supporting projects and assets of every domain and scale in ‘going digital.’ Additionally, laser scanning is now fully incorporated—where available, and as needed to supplement photography—among hybrid inputs for engineering-ready reality meshes. 

“Our ContextCapture and ProjectWise ContextShare announcements today at SPAR complete the reach, in my view, for reality modeling’s fidelity, accessibility, scalability, and shareability. In the coming year, our priority at Bentley Systems is to help engineers and surveyors take full advantage of this breakthrough opportunity to broaden the scope and value of their work in ‘going digital’ themselves!”

Bentley’s reality modeling advancements comprehensively deliver to surveying and engineering teams:

Fidelity

Hybrid processing in ContextCapture enables the creation of engineering-ready reality meshes that incorporate the best of both worlds – the versatility and convenience of high-resolution photography, supplemented, where needed, by additional accuracy from laser scanning. The new photo planning capabilities in Bentley’s applications empower engineering or survey professionals to easily prescribe the optimal camera positions and flight paths for UAVs to achieve the required levels of accuracy, in particular, for critical inspection points.

Accessibility

The new ContextCapture mobile app brings reality capture to every member of a project delivery or asset management team. Combined with the new ContextCapture cloud processing service, this delivers 3D reality meshes back to the mobile device, and to office-based professionals, immediately after a set of photos have been taken. The new Navigator Web application makes immersive reality modeling accessible through any browser, with progressive levels of detail.

Scalability

ContextCapture uniquely enables reality modeling to scale from city models to site models to component nameplates. Users can now take advantage of cloud services’ inherent parallel computing to speed processing of reality meshes. Scalable mesh technology enables multi-resolution inputs through the new (.3sm) format.

Shareability

ProjectWise, the collaboration system of choice for the majority of the ENR Top Design Firms, delivers comprehensive work sharing supported by a connected data environment, unifying design and construction teams to enable comprehensive project delivery. ProjectWise CONNECT Edition is provisioned by Microsoft’s Azure cloud service, and supports hybrid environments. The new ProjectWise ContextShare service adds breakthrough performance in securely streaming reality meshes and their inputs, making it possible to instantly and persistently share full-scale engineering-ready datasets across a distributed team, whether in the field or in the office. Offered through a visa subscription, with charges only for actual use, ProjectWise ContextShare completes the reach of Bentley’s comprehensive reality modeling solution, empowering engineering and surveying professionals to extend the value of their services across all applications and throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

The new Bentley ContextCapture cloud processing service will provide us the flexibility and power to accelerate the deployment of such innovations to our clients.”

CEO Greg Bentley said, “Last year at SPAR I described what I believed to be the significant potential of reality modeling for improved infrastructure engineering, in particular, from continuous surveying enabled by simple digital photography and UAVs, but that was then based only on our own experience. And there could have been resistance from survey professionals concerned that this more accessible technology might jeopardize their return on investments in laser scanning specialization, for example. It is gratifying to report now that in the intervening year, reality modeling has ‘gone mainstream’ globally, supporting projects and assets of every domain and scale in ‘going digital.’ Additionally, laser scanning is now fully incorporated—where available, and as needed to supplement photography—among hybrid inputs for engineering-ready reality meshes. 

“Our ContextCapture and ProjectWise ContextShare announcements today at SPAR complete the reach, in my view, for reality modeling’s fidelity, accessibility, scalability, and shareability. In the coming year, our priority at Bentley Systems is to help engineers and surveyors take full advantage of this breakthrough opportunity to broaden the scope and value of their work in ‘going digital’ themselves!”

Bentley’s reality modeling advancements comprehensively deliver to surveying and engineering teams:

Fidelity

Hybrid processing in ContextCapture enables the creation of engineering-ready reality meshes that incorporate the best of both worlds – the versatility and convenience of high-resolution photography, supplemented, where needed, by additional accuracy from laser scanning. The new photo planning capabilities in Bentley’s applications empower engineering or survey professionals to easily prescribe the optimal camera positions and flight paths for UAVs to achieve the required levels of accuracy, in particular, for critical inspection points.

Accessibility

The new ContextCapture mobile app brings reality capture to every member of a project delivery or asset management team. Combined with the new ContextCapture cloud processing service, this delivers 3D reality meshes back to the mobile device, and to office-based professionals, immediately after a set of photos have been taken. The new Navigator Web application makes immersive reality modeling accessible through any browser, with progressive levels of detail.

Scalability

ContextCapture uniquely enables reality modeling to scale from city models to site models to component nameplates. Users can now take advantage of cloud services’ inherent parallel computing to speed processing of reality meshes. Scalable mesh technology enables multi-resolution inputs through the new (.3sm) format.

Shareability

ProjectWise, the collaboration system of choice for the majority of the ENR Top Design Firms, delivers comprehensive work sharing supported by a connected data environment, unifying design and construction teams to enable comprehensive project delivery. ProjectWise CONNECT Edition is provisioned by Microsoft’s Azure cloud service, and supports hybrid environments. The new ProjectWise ContextShare service adds breakthrough performance in securely streaming reality meshes and their inputs, making it possible to instantly and persistently share full-scale engineering-ready datasets across a distributed team, whether in the field or in the office. Offered through a visa subscription, with charges only for actual use, ProjectWise ContextShare completes the reach of Bentley’s comprehensive reality modeling solution, empowering engineering and surveying professionals to extend the value of their services across all applications and throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

Combination of New ContextCapture Services and ProjectWise ContextShare Comprehensively Deliver Fidelity, Accessibility, Scalability, and Shareability

Houston, TX – SPAR 3D Expo & Conference – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, demonstrated at SPAR 3D Expo & Conference (SPAR) new ContextCapture offerings for reality modeling that increase joint opportunities in surveying and engineering. ContextCapture capabilities now include cloud processing services, a mobile app, and photo planning for Bentley’s applications. ContextShare extends Bentley’s ProjectWise connected data environment to securely manage, share, and stream reality meshes, and their input sources, across project teams and applications. Navigator Web is a new web application that delivers high-performance streaming of very large reality meshes through the browser to desktop or mobile devices.

For infrastructure project delivery, reality modeling captures the actual context of infrastructure projects through photos and/or scans, creating engineering-ready reality meshes for design modeling, analytical modeling, and construction modeling. During asset performance, as-operated reality meshes can serve to immersively geo-coordinate the alignment of these digital engineering models with right-time inputs from connected IoT technologies. Accordingly, reality modeling extends the scope for engineers to add value to include “conceptioneering” and “constructioneering” for capital projects, and “inspectioneering” and “productioneering” for operating assets. These use-case benefits of “continuous surveying” in turn provide new value opportunities for surveyors throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

Bureau Veritas, with 66,000 employees around the globe, is a world leader in testing, inspection, and certification of infrastructure assets. Thomas Daubigny, Bureau Veritas Chief Digital Officer, said, “Reality modeling is becoming pivotal in many industries as it fundamentally changes the management of assets, reinventing the handling of inspections, maintenance, and training, while opening doors to brand new services.

<i>Going Digital</i>: Bentley Systems Advances Reality Modeling to Extend the Scope of Engineering and Surveying Value

5.4.2017 17:31  

Combination of New ContextCapture Services and ProjectWise ContextShare Comprehensively Deliver Fidelity, Accessibility, Scalability, and Shareability

Houston, TX – SPAR 3D Expo & Conference – Bentley Systems, Incorporated, a leading global provider of comprehensive software solutions for advancing infrastructure, demonstrated at SPAR 3D Expo & Conference (SPAR) new ContextCapture offerings for reality modeling that increase joint opportunities in surveying and engineering. ContextCapture capabilities now include cloud processing services, a mobile app, and photo planning for Bentley’s applications. ContextShare extends Bentley’s ProjectWise connected data environment to securely manage, share, and stream reality meshes, and their input sources, across project teams and applications. Navigator Web is a new web application that delivers high-performance streaming of very large reality meshes through the browser to desktop or mobile devices.

For infrastructure project delivery, reality modeling captures the actual context of infrastructure projects through photos and/or scans, creating engineering-ready reality meshes for design modeling, analytical modeling, and construction modeling. During asset performance, as-operated reality meshes can serve to immersively geo-coordinate the alignment of these digital engineering models with right-time inputs from connected IoT technologies. Accordingly, reality modeling extends the scope for engineers to add value to include “conceptioneering” and “constructioneering” for capital projects, and “inspectioneering” and “productioneering” for operating assets. These use-case benefits of “continuous surveying” in turn provide new value opportunities for surveyors throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

Bureau Veritas, with 66,000 employees around the globe, is a world leader in testing, inspection, and certification of infrastructure assets. Thomas Daubigny, Bureau Veritas Chief Digital Officer, said, “Reality modeling is becoming pivotal in many industries as it fundamentally changes the management of assets, reinventing the handling of inspections, maintenance, and training, while opening doors to brand new services. Bureau Veritas is playing a key role in leveraging digital engineering models, implementing acquisition, and classifying objects based on its expertise on the asset, and ultimately operating the model as a data gatekeeper. The new Bentley ContextCapture cloud processing service will provide us the flexibility and power to accelerate the deployment of such innovations to our clients.”

CEO Greg Bentley said, “Last year at SPAR I described what I believed to be the significant potential of reality modeling for improved infrastructure engineering, in particular, from continuous surveying enabled by simple digital photography and UAVs, but that was then based only on our own experience. And there could have been resistance from survey professionals concerned that this more accessible technology might jeopardize their return on investments in laser scanning specialization, for example. It is gratifying to report now that in the intervening year, reality modeling has ‘gone mainstream’ globally, supporting projects and assets of every domain and scale in ‘going digital.’ Additionally, laser scanning is now fully incorporated—where available, and as needed to supplement photography—among hybrid inputs for engineering-ready reality meshes. 

“Our ContextCapture and ProjectWise ContextShare announcements today at SPAR complete the reach, in my view, for reality modeling’s fidelity, accessibility, scalability, and shareability. In the coming year, our priority at Bentley Systems is to help engineers and surveyors take full advantage of this breakthrough opportunity to broaden the scope and value of their work in ‘going digital’ themselves!”

Bentley’s reality modeling advancements comprehensively deliver to surveying and engineering teams:

Fidelity

Hybrid processing in ContextCapture enables the creation of engineering-ready reality meshes that incorporate the best of both worlds – the versatility and convenience of high-resolution photography, supplemented, where needed, by additional accuracy from laser scanning. The new photo planning capabilities in Bentley’s applications empower engineering or survey professionals to easily prescribe the optimal camera positions and flight paths for UAVs to achieve the required levels of accuracy, in particular, for critical inspection points.

Accessibility

The new ContextCapture mobile app brings reality capture to every member of a project delivery or asset management team. Combined with the new ContextCapture cloud processing service, this delivers 3D reality meshes back to the mobile device, and to office-based professionals, immediately after a set of photos have been taken. The new Navigator Web application makes immersive reality modeling accessible through any browser, with progressive levels of detail.

Scalability

ContextCapture uniquely enables reality modeling to scale from city models to site models to component nameplates. Users can now take advantage of cloud services’ inherent parallel computing to speed processing of reality meshes. Scalable mesh technology enables multi-resolution inputs through the new (.3sm) format.

Shareability

ProjectWise, the collaboration system of choice for the majority of the ENR Top Design Firms, delivers comprehensive work sharing supported by a connected data environment, unifying design and construction teams to enable comprehensive project delivery. ProjectWise CONNECT Edition is provisioned by Microsoft’s Azure cloud service, and supports hybrid environments. The new ProjectWise ContextShare service adds breakthrough performance in securely streaming reality meshes and their inputs, making it possible to instantly and persistently share full-scale engineering-ready datasets across a distributed team, whether in the field or in the office. Offered through a visa subscription, with charges only for actual use, ProjectWise ContextShare completes the reach of Bentley’s comprehensive reality modeling solution, empowering engineering and surveying professionals to extend the value of their services across all applications and throughout the infrastructure lifecycle.

AGI and Bentley Systems Announce Cesium Consortium

18.1.2017 15:10  
 
 
      

Bentley Systems Joins the Creators of Cesium to Accelerate Open-Source Development for Cesium’s Virtual Globe Technology

EXTON, Pa., U.S.A. – Analytical Graphics Inc. (AGI) and Bentley Systems are pleased to announce Bentley Systems as a co-founder of the new Cesium Consortium. Cesium is an open source, browser-based virtual globe, first developed by AGI in 2011 for the aerospace and defense communities. Cesium’s unparalleled performance in streaming very large datasets through a browser to desktops, tablets, and smart phones has enabled it to become the virtual globe of choice for geospatial viewing. The consortium will now enable AGI and Bentley to collaborate on the Cesium roadmap to better accelerate and support the requirements for building infrastructure modeling (BIM) and for owners of infrastructure assets. In addition, the consortium will support feature development, priority bug fixes, expansion of outreach efforts, and the hosting of social coding events such as code sprints and bug bashes.

Bentley Systems is adopting Cesium to visualize and interact with highly detailed infrastructure engineering models set in the reality context of their surrounding environment. The digital engineering models are created with Bentley’s MicroStation and BIM applications, and the context is provided through reality meshes, created from digital photography and scanning devices using Bentley’s ContextCapture.

Keith Bentley, founder and CTO of Bentley Systems, said, “We are thrilled to join the Cesium Consortium as a founding member. I commend AGI for their leadership and vision, not only for creating an open source solution for highly performant 3D web-based applications but, more importantly, for fostering an ecosystem to leverage it. I expect Bentley and our users will build Cesium-based Web clients for immersively viewing BIM models, reality context, asset databases, IoT streams, and myriad other ‘Geo3D’ services. We look forward to working hand in hand with AGI and future members of the consortium to expand Cesium as an open standard.”

Bentley’s work to date illustrates the advantages that the infrastructure community can expect from Cesium. Data created with both MicroStation and ContextCapture can be exported to 3D Tiles, an open format developed by the Cesium team to stream massive geo-coordinated 3D datasets. Cesium will enable Bentley users to stream their digital engineering models over the Web to desktop and mobile devices with unprecedented performance and precision.  

“We are very excited to collaborate with Bentley. Bentley shares our vision and technical approach and has already done some fantastic work with Cesium and 3D Tiles,” said Patrick Cozzi, Cesium founder. “Bentley’s support will be key within our submission team proposing 3D Tiles as an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Community Standard.”

Bentley Systems Joins the Creators of Cesium to Accelerate Open-Source Development for Cesium’s Virtual Globe Technology

EXTON, Pa., U.S.A. – Analytical Graphics Inc. (AGI) and Bentley Systems are pleased to announce Bentley Systems as a co-founder of the new Cesium Consortium. Cesium is an open source, browser-based virtual globe, first developed by AGI in 2011 for the aerospace and defense communities. Cesium’s unparalleled performance in streaming very large datasets through a browser to desktops, tablets, and smart phones has enabled it to become the virtual globe of choice for geospatial viewing. The consortium will now enable AGI and Bentley to collaborate on the Cesium roadmap to better accelerate and support the requirements for building infrastructure modeling (BIM) and for owners of infrastructure assets. In addition, the consortium will support feature development, priority bug fixes, expansion of outreach efforts, and the hosting of social coding events such as code sprints and bug bashes.

Bentley Systems is adopting Cesium to visualize and interact with highly detailed infrastructure engineering models set in the reality context of their surrounding environment. The digital engineering models are created with Bentley’s MicroStation and BIM applications, and the context is provided through reality meshes, created from digital photography and scanning devices using Bentley’s ContextCapture.

Keith Bentley, founder and CTO of Bentley Systems, said, “We are thrilled to join the Cesium Consortium as a founding member. I commend AGI for their leadership and vision, not only for creating an open source solution for highly performant 3D web-based applications but, more importantly, for fostering an ecosystem to leverage it. I expect Bentley and our users will build Cesium-based Web clients for immersively viewing BIM models, reality context, asset databases, IoT streams, and myriad other ‘Geo3D’ services. We look forward to working hand in hand with AGI and future members of the consortium to expand Cesium as an open standard.”

Bentley’s work to date illustrates the advantages that the infrastructure community can expect from Cesium. Data created with both MicroStation and ContextCapture can be exported to 3D Tiles, an open format developed by the Cesium team to stream massive geo-coordinated 3D datasets. Cesium will enable Bentley users to stream their digital engineering models over the Web to desktop and mobile devices with unprecedented performance and precision.  

“We are very excited to collaborate with Bentley. Bentley shares our vision and technical approach and has already done some fantastic work with Cesium and 3D Tiles,” said Patrick Cozzi, Cesium founder. “Bentley’s support will be key within our submission team proposing 3D Tiles as an Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Community Standard.”
