Delmar Systems, Inc. towing analysis is a fully coupled time domain analysis. It can be used to verify that the selected tow vessels are adequate for the operation and identify weather limitations with set bollard pull and line tension criteria. State-of-the-art marine software packages are used for the analysis. ANSYS® AQWA™ is used to generate six degrees-of-freedom response amplitude operators (RAOs) and wave drift force (WDF) coefficients for all vessels involved. Orcina OrcaFlex™ is used for the global modeling and time domain tow simulation for the metocean cases and directions of interest.
Tow analysis objectives include determining if tow vessel(s) can maintain a forward rig speed and control of rig, maximum tow line tensions, and bollard pull recommendations for specific weather scenarios.
