PLAXIS MONOPILE DESIGNER

The most advanced and innovative method for designing laterally loaded monopiles

Offshore Foundation Design Software

PLAXIS Monopile Designer addresses many of the shortcomings of other design methods for construction in the offshore wind turbine sector. Fully interoperable with PLAXIS 3D, it can be used either as a stand-alone application when defining the soil reaction curves (rule-based design) or with the most advanced and widely used geotechnical software solution when extracting them numerically from 3D FEM models (numerical-based design).

Working together, PLAXIS Monopile Designer and PLAXIS 3D easily automate the process of generating and calculating 3D models, deriving, normalizing, and parameterizing soil reaction curves, and extracting them to the 1D model.

PLAXIS Monopile Designer employs the most advanced and innovative method for designing laterally loaded monopiles – Pile Soil Analysis (PISA) – to optimise your foundation designs and lower steel, fabrication, transportation and installation costs.

Capabilities

  • Reduce Costs
    Significantly optimize the designs for your monopile foundation project. This will reduce overall steel, fabrication, transportation, and installation costs.
  • Gain Accuracy With The PISA Method
    Take advantage of the most advanced and innovative method for designing laterally loaded monopiles – Pile Soil Analysis (PISA). This method is the industry’s best practice for developing future generation of offshore wind farms.
  • Simplify Your Workflows With Interoperability
    Use PLAXIS Monopile Designer along with PLAXIS 3D to easily automate the process of generating and calculating 3D models. Derive, normalize, and parameterize soil reaction curves to calibrate your 1D model.
  • Analyze Layered Soils According To PISA Phase 2
    Combine multiple sets of soil reaction curves, either rule-based or numerically calibrated from homogeneous soil profiles, to conduct 1D analyses of monopiles in layered soil in accordance to the findings of PISA Phase 2.
  • Integrate Seamlessly With PLAXIS
    Pair PLAXIS Monopile Designer with PLAXIS 3D for a well proven and robust finite element solution for any type of offshore or onshore structure and reach your full design potential.
  • 3D Design Verification
    Automate the generation and calculation of a PLAXIS 3D FEM model to verify the final monopile geometry and validate the 1D design approach, as required by most design codes. Generate design verification models for both homogenous and layered profiles.
  • Optimize Your Monopile Designs
    Analyze the ability of monopile foundations to resist lateral loads based on a 1D Timoshenko beam finite element model and realistic soil reaction curves. You could reduce the embedded length of piles by up to 35%.
