CFD - Computational Fluid Dynamics

Dr.techn. Olav Olsen has recently established in-house competency for performing CFD simulations (Computational Fluid Dynamics). With a team of engineers holding multiple doctoral and master's degrees in marine engineering, numerical methods and fluid dynamics among them, we now provide detailed numerical calculations in 2D and 3D for simulations of wave, liquid and gas transport through the solution of the Navier-Stokes equations. This enables us to predict loads, flow patterns, and thermal effects that are closer to real life scenarios and have a higher degree of accuracy than using traditional methods. In this way, CFD will be able to expand the possibilities where technical standards and regulations may be limiting.

Dr.techn.Olav Olsen is aiming at world leading position for development of concrete platforms SRS models

Dr.techn.Olav Olsen (OO) has in 2018 significantly improved their position as leading supplier of Structural Reanalysis Systems (SRS) models of the large concrete platforms in the North Sea. OO has in the past participated in detail design of the majority of the offshore concrete platforms in the world, and our in-depth knowledge of the structures makes us well prepared for SRS analyses. Having a well-functioning and up-to-date SRS model is important for assessing for instance the effects of modifications and changing environments to existing assets.
