NEi Software Demonstrates Nastran Structural Analysis Software at Offshore Technology Conference for Oil and Gas Projects

WESTMINSTER, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 29, 2013) -  NEi Software, Inc., the developer and global provider of NEi Nastran finite element analysis (FEA) software, will be demonstrating its latest simulation capabilities for petroleum engineering projects at the Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) on May 6-9 at Reliant Park in Houston, TX.

The latest version of NEi Nastran incorporates a number of FEA tools for structures used in exploration, development and production in the oil and gas industry. These include offshore platforms, sub-sea structures, underwater vessels, support ships, pipelines, mooring systems, connectors, and flexible joints. Offshore structures pose particularly challenging engineering design problems because of their complexity, the different types of loading, and the harsh environment. NEi Software addresses these needs with both implicit and explicit FEA codes, extensive nonlinear capabilities in static, dynamic and thermal analyses, sophisticated 3D surface contact, bolted and threaded connections, and material models that include composite, hyperelastic, concrete, and soil mechanics. In addition, a number of automated features simplify the analysis process. For example, Automated Impact Analysis (AIA) requires the input of just a few initial conditions; yet, it is able to render an analysis with very meaningful data, like modal frequencies and resultant accelerations that can provide an assessment of the suitability of the design, or used to identify areas for changes. These technologies improve analysis results and provide an attractive return on investment (ROI) while mitigating risk, fostering innovative solutions, and providing essential engineering insights.

NEi Software invites offshore design and structural engineers to register in advance for a consultation session on their particular project with NEi Software's technical FEA experts who will be at booth #11405. A limited number of one-day passes are available to interested parties by emailing a request to Please identify your company and type of project.

About the Offshore Technology Conference
The Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) is organized and operated exclusively to promote and further the advance of scientific and technical knowledge of offshore resources and environmental matters. It is the world's foremost event for the development of offshore resources in the fields of drilling, exploration, production, and environmental protection. OTC is sponsored by 13 industry organizations and societies, who work cooperatively to develop the program each year. OTC also has two endorsing organizations and ten supporting organizations. Each year, OTC attracts more than 60,000 attendees and 2,000 exhibiting companies representing more than 110 countries.
