Compass latest FEM technology applied to Seakeeping Analyses

October 7th: One-hour webinar

SeaFEM is a suite of tools for the computational analysis of the effect of waves, wind and currents on naval and offshore structures, as well as for maneuvering studies. SeaFEM applications include ships, spar platforms, FPSO systems, semisubmersibles, TLPs, marine wind turbines and ocean energy harnessing devices.

SeaFEM includes a state-of-the-art radiation and diffraction solver, enabling direct time-domain analysis of the dynamic response of the structure. Furthermore, SeaFEM is integrated in the CompassFEM environment, allowing seamless connection with the FEM structural solver RamSeries, to perform oneway and two-way implicit fluid-structure interaction analyses.

The different tools available in SeaFEM are fully integrated in an advanced graphic user interface (GUI), for geometry and data definition, automatic mesh generation and visualizing the analysis results. SeaFEM GUI features a versatile tree-like interface for data managing, allowing an easy control of the whole process of entering the analysis data.

To facilitate the data definition process, SeaFEM provides tools to easily configure the type of the analysis to be carried out: seakeeping, maneuvering, towing or fluid-structure interaction). Furthermore, SeaFEM provides a variety of tools which allow having a perfect control over the process and assess its quality.

Who should attend?

This course is aimed at engineers -mostly Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers- who wish to learn more about how to apply finite element techniques to seakeeping analysis in the most effective manner.

Ideally, a user of the tool should have some experience of computational methods, but this is not essential.

Tdyn CFD+HT and RamSeries users, as well as re-sellers of these other codes, may be quite interested in this webinar. It is a great opportunity for learning about a new advanced tool.
