OptiGrav® is a tailor-made software for efficient pre-design and optimization of Seatower’s gravity based foundations. Pre-design/concept design of offshore foundations require numerous iterations of calculations. The calculations must be updated or redone every time a parameter is changed. OptiGrav® allows these calculations to be performed automatically as soon as a parameter is changed. The software therefore allows a highly efficient design process.
Furthermore, OptiGrav® software uses marginal rates to output comparative cost estimates for each design. The use of marginal rates makes the cost output suitable to estimate the cost difference between different designs. This makes the costing module ideal for cost optimisation. The software supports both manual optimisation and automatic screenings to find the cost-optimal design.
