Learn how to use equivalent static load (ESL) to save time in the analysis of ultimate and fatigue limit states for offshore jacket structures.

When performing ultimate limit state (ULS) and fatigue limit state (FLS) analyses of jacket structures, engineers need to account for dynamic effects - a process that can take up a lot of their time. Using the equivalent static load (ESL) is a simple and straightforward alternative. The method enables running FLS and ULS on piles without performing multi-staged, error-prone tasks.

Watch this webinar video to discover when, why and how to perform ESL in Sesam.
