    This presentation will demonstrate how we are using Autodesk Nastran In-CAD software as our first quick and easy tool for analyzing how a hydraulic seals design will be deformed during the installation process. In the off-shore industry, as in other industries, a lot of functional equipment is working as a function of hydraulic pressure and flow. The functionality of those systems is depending on how the hydraulic sealing system is working. Most of those hydraulic sealing systems are located inside the equipment, and it’s impossible to see how those hydraulic seals are deformed during installation. To optimize the hydraulic sealing systems, it is very important to perform FEA analyses already from the first phase in the design work. This class will be co-presented with David J. Weinberg, senior software architect.
