Topic A.    Type, Leg & Elevation

Overview-   SACS has templates for
            various types of structures
            including, offshore jackets
            and decks, dolphins, wharfs,
            towers, general space
            frames along with
            rectangular, cylindrical and
            spherical mesh.
                                           If the structure is in water check the

Topic B.    Conductors                                       Notes:

Overview-   Up to three well bays of
            conductors may be added
            using the Jacket Generation

Step 1.     If conductors are to be
            generated, select the
            Conductors tab.

Step 2.     Specify the number of well      A well bay is a group of equally spaced

Topic C.    Skirt Piles

Overview-   Up to three skirt piles may
            be defined at the corner legs
            of the structure.

Step 1.     Select the Skirt Pile tab if
            skirt piles are to be

Topic D.    Leg Data                                         Notes:

Overview-   Leg data is specified on the
            Column/Leg Data form.

Step 1.     Specify the row labels used
            to identify faces.

Step 2.     Enter the leg numbers used     Leg numbers must be odd. For un-

Step 3.     Enter the spacing between
            legs.                          Specify the leg spacing at the work point
Step 4.     Enter the batter in X and Y
            batter of the outside legs.    Enter ‘0' for vertical legs. X batter is the
                                           rise/run in the global XZ plane while Y
                                           batter is the rise/run in the YZ plane.
