Engineering Simulation Solutions for the Oil and Gas Industry – Hydrodynamics and Mooring Analysis
Duration: 60 minutes
Offshore construction and design projects are complex and require that the design and analysis be performed efficiently and rigorously. To facilitate this, engineering simulation software must be powerful, robust and user friendly. ANSYS AQWA software is an engineering hydrodynamic simulation tool for the offshore and marine community. This recorded webinar provides a brief introduction to the solutions that the ANSYS AQWA portfolio of software offers.
ANSYS AQWA provides an integrated environment for developing the primary hydrodynamic parameters required for undertaking complex motions and response analyses. Analysis may be undertaken with multiple bodies, taking full account of hydrodynamic interaction effects that occur between the bodies. While primarily designed for floating structures, fixed bodies such as breakwaters or gravity-based structures may be included in the models. The simulation can also generate pressure and inertial loading for use in a structural analysis as part of the vessel hull design process.
The generic nature of the program enables the hydrodynamic simulation of all types of offshore structures including spars; floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels; semi-submersibles; ship-shaped structures and many of the various emerging wave energy systems.
