Bentley Systems Inc., a provider of software solutions for sustaining infrastructure, has acquired the SACS business from Engineering Dynamics Inc. SACS is an integrated finite element structural analysis suite of programs that provides for the design, fabrication, installation, operations and maintenance of offshore structures, including wind farms and oil platforms.
SACS complements Bentley's analysis and design offerings, including STAAD, RAM, ProSteel and Bentley Structural Modeler.
SACS consists of multiple integrated modules that enable engineers to generate any type of offshore structural system using templates or free-form modeling tools. The model can then be subjected to environmental loads, such as waves or marine growth, and investigated for various scenarios, including the effects of fatigue, collapse, ship impact, transportation and installation, according to the company.
Ion Partners LLC acted as financial adviser to Engineering Dynamics on this transaction.
