The Challenge

To shorten design time while improving engineering quality for subsea plate mudmats used in the oil and gas industry to support equipment on the ocean floor.

Dassault Systèmes Response

Abaqus FEA, coupled with proprietary software through APIs, allows the design process to be automated and streamlined from model development to post processing.

Benefits

Mudmat custom design, which was largely manual and took weeks to months, now takes only days, providing engineers greater design freedom and the ability to meet tight deadlines.
