LUSAS LNG Tank Analysis and Design System

The LUSAS LNG Tank Analysis and Design System allows engineers to automatically create a range of 2D and 3D finite element models of full containment circular tanks from user-defined parameters. From these models, a range of analyses can be performed, and design checks can be optionally carried out for specified load combinations.

Why use the LUSAS LNG Tank System?

  • Built on 20 years of experience in the LNG market.
  • Automated model building with comprehensive checks for various events and loading scenarios.
  • Model construction stages including pre-stressing, and evaluate thermal effects during operation.
  • Carry out concrete wall and seismic checks to codes of practice.
  • Customise the software to suit your needs using the LUSAS Programmable Interface.
  • LUSAS is a long-established and trusted provider to industry leaders, and LUSAS Technical Support is stated, by its users, to be simply: "The best in the business."
