PDi’s software development team, PDiTech has been busy developing the ‘Catenary Calculator’, and it’s now available for FREE download on iTunes and Android. The app will provide an estimate of top tension, layback, catenary length and departure angle using the catenary curve equations.
Catenary Calculator aims to assist subsea engineers perform a preliminary check for the installation of subsea pipelines, flexibles and umbilicals and determine the key criteria of the installation. It is intended that the application is used as a high level indicator of these elements where sophisticated software or dedicated analysis resources are not available.
Catenary Calculator is the first app from PDiTech, with the intention to develop further software which will form part of the ‘Engineer’s Toolbox’ suite of applications.
