2H Offshore Launches New Fracture Mechanics Software, FlawIQ HoustonMarch 2016 2H Offshore, an Acteon company, has designed and launched a new Engineering Critical Assessment (ECA) software, FlawIQ. FlawIQ is a comprehensive tool that automates both BS7910 and API 579 procedures, making it faster and simpler to perform accurate fatigue assessments for offshore components. FlawIQ is the only commercially available tool that incorporates both BS7910 and API 579 standards; eliminating the need for multiple software tools; saving operators both time and money. Key benefits of FlawIQ include the ability for the user to automate flaw ranges, and to run multiple cases without manual intervention. The program is highly customisable, making it simple to incorporate new solutions and to increase the accuracy for special situations such as HPHT applications. The tool is web-based and features an easy to use online help facility, and access to 2H Offshore’s expert team of ECA engineers for technical support and training. The software has many applications within the oil and gas, nuclear, and construction industries, with various types of structures including pipelines, pressure vessels and piping, tanks and buildings, in both design and in-service phases. Mike Campbell, vice president, 2H Offshore, said, “2H Offshore developed this software to provide our customers with an easier, more streamlined way to perform fracture mechanics. The current programs available on the market are useful, but fail to incorporate both BS7910 and API 579 standards. The incorporation of these standards is becoming increasingly important to our clients. With FlawIQ, everything is housed within one program, no matter which industry standard is required.” To read more about the key features of FlawIQ or to sign up for a monthly subscription, visit www.flawiq.com.
