Innovative offshore engineering made easy
The DNV Sesam software is a complete strength assessment system for engineering of ships, offshore structures and risers based on the finite element methodology.
Life cycle management using concept technologies
The DNV Sesam software is a life cycle management system delivering strength assessment and operational management from design to operation to decommissioning. The DNV Sesam software Sesam covers a structure's entire life cycle delivering engineering software support in design, structural re-analysis systems, modifications and repair, input to the operational phase, emergency response and decommission.
Using concept technologies in computer aided engineering has proven to be cost-efficient in all the design phases, since the same concept model can be used with different complexities.
Market driven development
While the DNV Sesam software has evolved as a market-driven modular system enabling users to invest in a package of selected modules, integrated packages have also been developed to cover specific needs.
This allows for tailor-made Sesam installations to maximise features in a cost-efficient way. The packages share a common look and feel, which makes the system intuitive and easy to learn. All packages cover in-place, installation, transportation, accidental conditions and operational aspects.
