Sample or test problems are available on the download page. The download file consists of the folder Testing with subfolders Animation, Examples, MOB RMFC, OMAEbarge, and Scripting. These videos work through the sample problems.
Note: The first video link is to a video hosted on YouTube. The "Alternate" link is to the same video on a Chinese hosting site.
These sample problems demonstrate the application of HYDRAN-XR to obtain the wave-induced motion for a rigid body. The problems involve a single rigid body, two rigid bodies, and three rigid bodies. In all cases the body is a simple box with a coarse mesh to speed calculation. The bodies are not connected so the multi-body problems demonstrate structure-fluid-structure interaction. Solutions using no symmetry, single symmetry, and double symmetry are demonstrated. Recommended for all users.

Video demonstrates the rigid module, flexible connector (RMFC) model of a mobile offshore base (MOB). Each rigid module is a semisubmersible platform. The MOB consists of 5 modules oriented serially. The modules are connected at the deck level only to reduce connection forces. Different options for modeling the connectors are discussed.

This is a detailed hydroelastic problem that is discussed in a series of videos. The videos are discussed and presented at the bottom of the web page , which is also accessible from the Videos navigation bar.
Video shows how the scripting capability of HYDRAN-XR can be used to generate the hydrodynamic panel mesh of a circular cylinder, with or without a top and/or bottom.
