This course introduces the participants to the Sesam programs for wave load analysis of offshore floaters based on the frequency domain methodology. The course addresses hydrodynamic analysis, short- and long-term statistics, and transfer of wave loads to structural analysis. HydroD is the main tool, supported by Wadam, Postresp and Xtract.
Learn how to perform global hydrodynamic response analysis, transfer loads to structural analysis, compute short- and long-term statistics and to animate results. The exercise is based on a semi-submersible or FPSO.
Naval architects involved in conceptual studies and detailed engineering of any offshore floating structure.
