GALWAY, Ireland – MCS Kenny has released Version 8 of its Flexcom riser design and analysis software.

MCS Kenny says the new version makes it easier to model the characteristics of all types of riser systems, particularly deepwater. Also, it will help with the increasingly complex and demanding design requirements associated with multi-case extreme and fatigue seastate loading conditions.

"We created Flexcom V8 to deliver a step-change in how riser engineering design and analysis is performed,” said Patrick Scully, general manager or MSC Kenny’s software division. “The enhancements provided by this new version lead to a better design that supports the industry's significant focus on improved process safety, better predictability, and greater knowledge of utilization and integrity during operations.”

Flexcom V8 features include:

• Increased productivity: Improvements to the computational modeling make Flexcom V8 approximately 40% faster on average than the previous version. The all-new project-focused work environment simplifies quality assurance and ensures optimal use of processing resources when running multiple analyses simultaneously.
• Innovative processes: An automatic mesh-creation facility expedites the model creation process; a live structure preview facility is available during model building, and an integrated keyword editor and a summary post-processing collation facility have been added.
• Expanded analytical capabilities: Sliding pipe-in-pipe contact has been added and internal fluid and slug flow modeling is enhanced.
