FORCE ANALYSIS

MAIN FEATURES

  • Selection of an unlimited number of regularly shaped structures for each analysis
  • Investigation of an unlimited number of angles of incidence for each structure
  • Description of each wave direction through expected wave amplitude
  • Analysis of progressive and standing waves
  • Computation of force and torque amplitudes (6 degrees of freedom) as a function of wave length
  • Comparison of results with available field data
  • Visualisation of results
  • Suitable for designing and testing

OPTIONS FOR IO OPERATIONS

  • Microsoft Excel Spreadsheet Files (xlsx)

OPTIONS FOR GRAPHICS 

  • Standard Image Formats (jpeg, tiff)
  • Portable Document Format (pdf)

TEST CASES

Figure 1 shows some simulation results outlining how maximum force amplitudes are influenced by structure dimensions and wave characteristics.
