Automatic Structural Data Generation for Offshore Platforms

C. Curotto, M. Rodriguez, A. J. Ferrante


GADEP is a computational system for data generation
and for graphic treatment of analysis results, concerning the structures of offshore platforms. This system operates on an advanced CAD/CAE unit and has
efficient interfaces with the ADEP system, for structural analysis and design, and with the GEDEP system, for the generation of platform and production facilities technical and fabrication drafts. Thus, those three systems provide the necessary tools for fully automated offshore structure design.
This paper discusses the fundamental aspects taken
into account in the design and implementation of the
GADEP system. An illustrative example is also
presented, in order to show a practical application of the system.
