Lars Hansen has experience from structural analysis since 1996.

1,5 years analysing pressure vessels and piping in Goodtech Betex.

1,5 years from subsea equipment in APL (, where I did piping and other analysis both by hand and using Ansys, all according to different codes and standards (Dnv, ASME etc.)

3 years in Kongsberg Defence & Aerospace ( In KDA, I used MSC.Nastran and MSC.Patran. I also did a lot of mechanism simulations using Fedem ( Also MSC.Fatigue was used in some projects doing vibration fatigue analysis.

3 years in EAC ( on Kongsberg. In June 2003, EAC was bought by Kongsberg Devotek (

From February 2003, I was hired out to Kværner Oilfield Products (KOP in Oslo. There I used MSC.Patran, MSC.Marc and Abaqus for thermal analysis on subsea equipment. In addition to that, I did some hand- or FE-analysis on solid structures, including contact and non-linearities.

Kinds of analysis I have experience from:

  • Linear statics
  • Linear and Non-linear materials
  • Large displacements
  • Contact
  • Modal analysis
  • Thermal analysis (steady state and transient)
  • Thermal shock on structure - LNG in valve (transient results on structure)
  • Buckling, linear- and non-linear
  • Transcient response (base excitation)
  • Dynamic explicit analysis
  • Frequency response
  • Random response
  • Fatigue (MSC.Fatigue)
  • Aeroelasticity, static and flutter
  • Mechanism simulations (Fedem)
