PDL Capabilities

Umbilical Analysis

The safe and efficient performance of subsea umbilicals is paramount to ensuring offshore operations are carried out without interruption.

PDL Solutions have long been considered the “go to” consultancy for subsea umbilical analysis. Working alongside contractors in the UK, Americas and beyond, we have gained a thorough understanding of cable dynamics and have developed innovative methodologies to handle the most difficult of umbilical analyses.

Using a combination of global, local and thermal analysis, we are able to capture the intrinsically complex behaviour of a variety of umbilical cross-sections. We are then able to carry out comprehensive fatigue analyses in accordance with DnV-RP-F401. 

Specifically, PDL can offer the following analysis capabilities:

Button Global dynamic analysis

Button Installation storyboarding and analysis

Button Local and thermal analysis

Button Determination of operational envelopes

Button Clashing analysis

Button Spooling and over-boarding analysis

Access Key Enabled Navigation
