Announcements CD-adapco will host a free webinar on September 3, 2015 on the Use of CFD to Support the Design and Operation of Offshore Vessels.

If you are involved in the design or operation of offshore vessels and are interested in learning how industry leaders such as Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) are using CFD as part of the Naval Architect’s toolkit, this webinar is for you.

Sponsor CFD Review

Designing and operating offshore vessels can be a challenge, making an accurate understanding of vessel behavior an economic and safety necessity. While potential flow codes and model tests remain key parts of the Naval Architect’s toolkit, their limitations are well known. For example, Chevron reports that differences between the model test and field behavior for Vortex Induced Motion (VIM) has unnecessarily added millions of dollars to project costs.

The webinar will highlight the application of CFD to evaluate:

  • Current and wind loads on a semi-submersible crane vessel (SSCV)
  • Thruster efficiency
  • Roll damping and wave induced motions
  • Moon pool behavior
  • Lowering dynamics (added mass and damping)

This online event will also feature a live demonstration of simulation software for the installation of subsea equipment.
