Ease of use is central to the StrinGnosis philosophy. The user works in a linear fashion; defining The Well followed by proposing a Casing Design. Appropriate loads are then built in the Stress Calculator before being summarized and analyzed in the Stress Results. If Thermal Analysis is required this can be carried out and the results from this carried over into APB Analysis. StrinGnosis can automatically calculate Allowable APB and provide the user with easy to understand results.
The “always-on” well schematic available through the included SideKick tool gives a visually pleasing, detailed picture of the well throughout the analysis and design process.
StrinGnosis allows users to create not only standard drilling and production loads using simple templates, but also a flexible way to create any customized load to analyze non-standard loads, using the pre-built templates as a starting point.
