INOCEANO is composed by a multidisciplinary group of highly skilled researchers focused on integrity assessment of offshore structures and operational risk reduction of floating units and subsea systems.
Our main roles:
Services and advanced consultancy for the offshore industry with in-depth knowledge of the problem developed during the applied R&D activities using state-of-practice tools or in-house developments. Efficient management practices to deliver projects on time and budget. Customized solutions to improve efficiency. Our activities include: i. SURF (Subsea, umbilicals, risers and pipelines), ii. FPS (Floating production systems) and iii. Integrity assessment of offshore structures in general.
Development of tailor-made tools for specific structural analysis applications. Optimization of analysis work flows (e.g. batch running, results extraction, report automatization). Customized applications for data processing. Mathematical formulation and numerical implementation. A number of different programming languages can be employed: Python, Matlab, C++, Fortran, Mathematica and others.
R&D with industrial relevance. Perform applied research and development in close cooperation with universities, manufacturers and suppliers with focus in bringing a cost-effective solution for the customer. Our main fields of research are structural engineering and materials technology.
- Open-source software development through the SPOSS (Special purpose open-source software) initiative. The goal is to speed-up the innovation process and help increasing the knowledge of a specific industry technical issue by gathering contribution from different sources.
