Hydrodynamic Response Analysis


Integrated Structural Finite Element Analysis

The video to the left illustrates the response of a barge in an 8 second regular wave with zero degree heading (head seas). The barge is discussed in Riggs, H. R., Niimi, K. M., and Huang, L. L. (2007). “Two benchmark problems for three-dimensional, linear hydroelasticity.” Journal of Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering, 129, 149-157. The structural model of the barge was created using shell elements. All analysis was in HYDRAN-XR.
