Introduction to FPSO-ISE Software

Welcome to ABS Eagle FPSO-ISE software for Initial Scantling Evaluation of Floating production Storage and Offloading vessels.

1.1 ISE Program Features

Initial Scantling Evaluation (ISE) software has the following features to make data entry easy for an ISE analysis:

Graphical interactivity for updating bulk data.

Template-defined midship cross sections based on key dimensions, resulting in minimal modeling time.

Uniform user interface standardized with property window.

Graphical display of longitudinal rule checks.

Simplicity in import of existing projects.

With FPSO version 3.0 and later, SEAS software is embedded in ISE.

1.2 Known Limitations and Workarounds

Note the following known limitation and workarounds to use when using FPSO-ISE:

The Region and Language setting on your PC must be set to English (United States). See Section 2.2, Setting the Region and Language on your PC for instructions on performing this setup.

Project names are limited to seven (7) characters, and cannot contain spaces.

The project path directory cannot contain spaces.

When laying plates, every location that involves an intersection (e.g., at the intersection of the bottom and a bottom girder, or the side and a side stringer) requires a virtual plate end, even though the plate does not physically end at that location.

Stiffeners should not be located at the ends of a plate. They should be offset by at least 3 mm from either end of a plate.

If the data is created by importing from an earlier version of FPSO, the user must delete and redefine all the tank(s).

If the order of definition of 2D Tanks is changed or 2D Tanks are redefined, the 3D tanks need to be redefined.

If the plate definition is changed, the 2D and 3D tanks need to be redefined.

Although the order of plates or stiffeners can be sorted, the sorted results will not be saved.

Although the interface does not limit the number of stiffeners on transverse bulkhead, the rule program only accepts up to five (5) stiffeners.

Group/Component

Description

Draw

This group contains all the tools for constructing CAD images, such as lines, arcs, and splines.

Snaps

Object snap options specify snap point(s) at an exact location on an object. These tools work on native geometric entities (lines, arcs, and splines) and also on the section curve, plate or stiffener objects.

The snap point on an object can be as follows:

Endpoint

Midpoint

Center

Perpendicular

Nearest (any point on an object)

Intersection (one point)

Edit

Use these tools to modify native geometric entities (lines, arcs, and splines). These tools do not work on section curve, plate, or stiffener objects.

Group/Component

Description

Erase

To erase drawing content, click this button, then select the objects to erase using a box selection. Once the object(s) are selected, press Enter or right-click to remove the selected item.

Note: When erasing individual lines that are part of larger polygons, the entire line must be inside the selection box to be selected.

Move

To move an object, click Move, then select the objects to move using a selection box. Once the objects are selected, press Enter or right-click to complete the selection. The system will then ask for the source point (reference start point) and the To point for the move action.

Fillet

Connect two lines, two arcs, or one arc with a line (these two objects must have at least one common point either visible, or in their extension), with an arc with a specific radius. The value of the radius has some restrictions depending on the position of the objects. If radius = 0, the objects are either extended until they intersect each other in one point (if there was not an intersection point) or trimmed (if an intersection point is visible).

Trim

With the Trim command, you can trim objects at a cutting edge defined by other objects. First select the objects that define the cutting edges at which you want to trim an object, then select the object. The following objects can be trimmed:

arcs, circles, elliptical arcs, and lines.

Copy

To copy an object, click Copy, then select the objects to copy using a box selection. Once the objects are selected, press Enter or right-click to complete the selection. The system will then ask for the source point (reference start point) and the To point for the copy/paste action.

Extend

With this command, you can extend lines, arcs, and polylines until they intersect with another object that is used as the limit of the extension. You will first select the objects that will define the extension limits, then select the point on the target object that you want to extend. The object is extended to the point where it intersects with one of the “limiting” objects. If the object extension does not intersect with any limiting object, nothing will happen.

User-Defined Files

As mentioned above, user-defined files are files that the user defines by inputting specific values into a property window or data table. The application then creates the file by inserting those values into a pre-defined format.

The user can check the contents of the following user-defined files, created at General Data entry:

INP

BST

FLY

SMB (for tanker)

4.2

Libraries

The libraries are a set of files that provide the application with information associated with the materials, structural elements, and wave factors associated with an ISE project for a specific vessel.

Libraries can be developed as original files, using the library utilities listed below. Files thus created apply to the project by default.

below. Files thus created apply to the project by default. However, the user can also import

However, the user can also import library files from a previously developed project, as explained in the following.

4.2.1

Importing Libraries

At the Libraries level, one or more library files may be imported using the context menu associated with this link:

imported using the context menu associated with this link: 1. Right-click the Libraries link, then click

1. Right-click the Libraries link, then click Import Library. A Windows Explorer navigation window opens.

2. Navigate to the folder containing the desired library file(s).

3. Click the folder to select it.

4. Click OK. The files for the selected library are imported into the project folder.

In the individual library links, the user can right-click the specific link and follow the same steps above to import only that library file.

NOTES:

When a library file is imported, the application retains the file extension (.SLB, etc.), but replaces the file name with the project name. For instance, for a project with the project name FPSO_3A, a stiffener library file imported from a project FPSO_2 is renamed as FPSO_3A.SLB.

It is important that the user inspect a newly imported library file to be sure that the contents are appropriate to the project into which it is imported. The user can open the file after it is imported, and use the library utility involved to make any needed modifications.

4.2.2 Frame Table

This feature will be used in a later release of FPSO-ISE.

4.2.3 Material Table

This table is for reference, and is read-only.

4.2.4 Stiffener

When the user clicks the Stiffener Library link, the Stiffener Library utility opens.

Stiffeners that are defined through the Stiffener Library utility and opened within FPSO ISE are automatically available to the project.

A stiffener library file can also be imported from another project, by use of the import methodology explained above, or by import through the Stiffener Library utility, as is explained within the Help for Stiffener Library.

4.2.5 End Connections

As with stiffeners, when the user clicks the End Connection link, the End Connection utility opens.

Also as with Stiffener Library, End Connections defined with the End Connections utility are available to the FPSO-ISE project. One could, for example, create end connections with flat bar widths, in mm, of:

0

200

250

300

End Connection files can also be imported into the project from another project.

4.2.6 Cutout Library

Cutout Library files can also be created, when the user clicks the Cutout Library link. Cutouts thus created can be used in the project, or imported into the project.

4.3 Importing FPSO Data

As of version 3.0, FPSO provides many different ways to import data from existing projects, saving time and effort in creation of various vessel analysis parts. This section explains how Import functionality works.

In general, each import command opens a Windows Explorer dialog that is used to navigate to the file containing the data to be imported. After the file has been selected, there may be other options before the data is imported from the source project to the target project being analyzed.

Laying Plates and Stiffeners on Section Types

After generating the geometry, populate each structure first with plates, and then with stiffeners. Only three sections are explained below, but all other sections are populated with the same methodology.

NOTES:

1.

For the Along parameter, three distance measurements are available:

Girth This is the distance along the geometry from the beginning of the section type to the end. The remaining girth is displayed each time another plate or stiffener group is added.

Horizontal_From_CL This is the distance from the centerline to the point at which the plate or stiffener group begins.

Vertical_From_BL This is the distance from the baseline upward to the point at which the plate or stiffener group begins.

2.

Stiffeners should not be located at the ends of a plate. Give them a distance at least 3mm from either end of a plate.

6.2.2.1 Generate Plates

A few differences for the Bottom, as well as other longer structures, are important:

Every location that involves a knuckle (e.g., at the juncture of the bottom and a bottom girder or the side and a side stringer) requires a virtual plate end: a defined plate ended, even though the plate does not physically end at that location.

The first plate is defined in the same way that a plate is defined for the Keel Plate.

Note: Because the entire geometry is a straight line perpendicular to the centerline and extending transversely toward the side, for the Along parameter, either the Girth value or the Horizontal_from_CL value can be selected, with identical results.
