DNV: Hydrodynamic Analysis of Offshore Structures

This paper from DNV Software describes the role of a linear frequency domain analysis for offshore structures, and some of the important aspects that must be addressed when doing such an analysis. The two main challenges in this analysis, in addition to creating a good quality panel model, are:

  • How to include the viscous effects
  • How to handle the mooring system

Both of these will be discussed in some detail.

The calculation of hydrodynamic analysis is done by the world leading software tool: DNV Sesam HydroD (Wasim, Wadam), which has specialised in hydrodynamic design of floating structures for decades.
