Scripting is a powerful tool for those seeking to get the most out of their FEM software. In this tech-talk, we will demonstrate a few examples of how scripting can be used for automation and efficient execution of offshore engineering analyses. 

Topics covered: 

  • Scripting for parametric modelling (Sesam GeniE) 
  • Scripting for controlling the execution of multiple analyses with varying inputs (Sesam HydroD and Sesam Manager)
  • Creating your own reports through scripting 

Learning objectives: 

Gaining insight and ideas on how the tool can be utilized. This is not a training in JavaScript. The methods presented are general and easy to understand for experienced offshore engineers with good domain knowledge about hydrodynamic and/or structural analysis. The examples will be demonstrated on a floating structure, but the content applies to fixed structures as well. Previous knowledge of the Sesam suite and its different tools is not required. 

About the speakers:
