HUNTSVILLE, Alabama -- Intergraph has interfaced Smart 3D design software with GexCon’s FLACS explosion analysis software to increase speed and accuracy of design safety analysis for plants handling explosive materials or pressurized liquids and gases.

Comprised of SmartPlant and SmartMarine 3D, Smart 3D design software enforces regulation and engineering standards early in the design process. FLACS is an explosion consequence prediction tool for offshore oil and gas installations.

Tom Fiske, senior analyst with ARC Advisory Group, said: “The interface between Intergraph’s rules-based 3D design solution and GexCon’s FLACS explosion analysis software can help designers increase productivity and enhance safety before plant construction begins.”
