Hi everybody,

I'm new with ORCAFLEX package and have some questions to perform my job. Any help will be appreciated in advanced.

1- I'm going to analysis installation progress of one HDPE pipeline with Orcaflex(8.4). This pipeline would be filled with see water and then is going to be sunk by adding some ballast blocks(added weight controllers). Therefore i shall model a pipeline which is full filled with water and is semi sunk, then adding each ballast blocks one by one. How can i model one by one adding the blocks?

2- As i understand Ver. 8.4 (which our company owned) can not consider the hollow section for the pipe and filling the line during installation?

3- How can i found some self-training sources? There is no way for me to access to ORCINA train courses and i didn't found sufficient or suitable things on internet.

Cheers all
