Engineering Analysis Consultancy : Offshore and Subsea

MAATS Tech engineers have extensive experience in the design and analysis of offshore and sub-sea systems. This was achieved through detailed engineering and extensive non-linear finite element analysis carried out in accordance with a variety of codes of practice, including BS 8010, ANSI B31, & DNV OS-F101. We have practical experience in the following analytical techniques:-



  • Structural design and optimization via analytical assessment and FE analysis in accordance with DNV standards.
  • Geotechnical investigations including pile-to-soil interaction via complex non-linear material FE models.
  • Dynamic response of structures to seismic and wind loads.
  • Blast assessment of top-side equipment via transient material non-linear analyses



  • Detailed non-linear material and geometry analysis to calculate plastic strains applying limit-state design principals.
  • Local impact effects and dynamic assessment of trawling gear passing over pipelines.
  • Assessment of sub-sea and onshore tie-in spools involving anisotropic sliding sea-bed contact.
  • Analysis of pipeline bulkheads in accordance with ASME VIII.
