Joint Mesher & Joint Design in SACS

OnDemand Available Now

Joint Mesher is a powerful utility provided in SACS to help engineers with accurate complex joint design.

The joint mesher allows the user to create a high quality 3D mesh of a joint that consists of many connections. The program supports tubular, wide flange, box, channel, angle, tee, double angle sections, plate girder, double web plate girder, boxed plate girder, and unsymmetrical plate girders. It also supports the addition of user-defined plate surface to also be included in the mesh.

The software automatically creates a 3D representation of the joint by performing a number of solid modeling operations that identify the intersection curves of the joint and subsequently meshes the resulting surfaces with triangular or quadrilateral plates. The chord members and brace members are automatically identified along with a brace hierarchy.

In this webinar, our offshore expert, Kaushik Mukherjee, will discuss :

  • Concept of tubular joint design  
  • Modelling stiffened joints in SACS Precede
  • Joint mesher in SACS​
  • SCF Extraction for non-tubular joints
