عنوان مقاله [English]
Due to the complexity of analytical and special boundary conditions of offshore structures, accurate analysis control is always requires. Today, using the computer programs instead of hand Calculations is useful for analysis and design of such structures. SACS is pioneer in offshore structural design and this paper has been discussed about the software evaluation on non-linear finite element analysis. This type of analyze is often used for older structures in order to achieve the ultimate strength of members. In this study, in addition to previous researches, by using the ANSYS and ABAQUS results, the results of the SACS has been described and compared. The software has predicted properly the ultimate strength of structure
