Announcing StrinGnosis® 3.6

Release Date: March 2022

The Blade Technology development team have been hard at work adding new features to StrinGnosis® here are some of the latest updates:

  • Load Form Overhaul Load forms have been condensed into a single window that display load, string temperature (including graphs) and an area to make notes.
  • Comapny Specific Standard Load Cases The load form overhaul has now made it quick and efficient to create new standard load forms. Companies can now request for their own company specific load cases to be included in their version of the software. Only colleagues and approved contractors will be able to see the specified load cases. Contact or your local representative for further details.
  • Dog Leg Severity (DLS) Override Implemented DLS override option for users who want to input their own DLS data, for conservative sensitivity analysis.
  • Normalized Safety Factors Option to modify absolute safety factors load results to view as normalized safety factors. Normalized safety factor is the ratio of absolute safety factor to the design safety factor. Normalized safety factor will be greater than 1.0 if the absolute safety factor is greater than design safety factor. It is an alternate way to represent safety factors.
  • Casing Program – Additional Columns Additional columns (hidden by default) are always just a right-click away, and we’ve now added some very useful additional features that show: cement volume and annular volumes. There are options to display these per string and per section

Tellus OCTG

Blade Technology Corporation, LLC Tools

Tellus OCTG is an app to determine the performance properties of oilfield tubulars (OCTG) as specified in the historical API 5C3 standard. It provides

  • API MIYP (Burst),
  • API Collapse with Tension adjustment, and
  • Pipe Body Yield Strength (PBYS),

of casing and tubing, and considers effect of temperature on yield strength.

The app includes an inventory of commonly used oilfield pipes, and custom sizes can be defined by the user.
