Have you ever tried to break a single rod of spaghetti? If not you should try – it is quite fascinating. We tried to model and simulate the bending of spaghetti in FEDEM and see if the multiple breaking could be tested virtually.
We have simulated a Trebuchet, which is a type of catapult that was used to throw projectiles at enemies during sieges in the middle ages.
Vibrations in a topside pipe system on the Troll-C platform was simulated in order to assess potential damage on the inlet to a separator tank, and to check if any internal damage in non-inspectable areas was likely to have occurred.
A design stair with an unsupported intermediate platform is verified for deflection and vibrational behavior.
