Analysis of influence of wind, current and waves

Estimation of environmental loads are important when designing vessels having manouvering and operational criterions. 

Wind and current forces

  • CFD is used to calculate environmental loads from wind and current.
  • Detailed geometries are solved by efficient geometry handling, meshing and CFD procedures and reliable results could be achieved within a few hours.
  • Insights into thruster losses, shallow water effects and hull to hull interactions.

Wave forces and wave induced vessel motions

  • Linear potential theory codes are used to calculate wave forces and vessel motions.
  • Results can be used for vessel response, seakeeping and station keeping / DP analysis
