Analysis and Hydrodynamic Assessment of Offshore and Marine Structures Using ANSYS Aqwa

Details –


Hydrodynamic Simulation for Mechanical Users

ANSYS Aqwa software addresses the vast majority of analysis requirements associated with hydrodynamic assessment of all types of offshore and marine structures. These include SPARs, FPSOs, Semi-submersibles, Tension leg platforms, Ships, Renewable energy devices, and Breakwaters.

The most significant result of this is found in the ANSYS Mechanical Enterprise product, which made available a whole range of additional capabilities as a result of merging previously separate products with ANSYS Mechanical. Of particular interest to companies involved in offshore oil & gas activities is the inclusion of the ANSYS Aqwa Hydrodynamics suite that enables both generation of hydrodynamic loads on large floating structures and global motions performance including moorings are other physical connections.

About Seminar –


This session will introduce and explain the new licensing model, and then present how Aqwa can be utilized as part of the overall design process for offshore structures.


  • Introduction to the new Mechanical Licensing model
  • Introduction of the ANSYS Aqwa Hydrodynamic capabilities
  • Conventional moored Truss Spar
  • Dynamically positioned semi-submersible
  • FPSO turret moored
  • Ship sea-keeping
  • Hydrodynamic load mapping to Mechanical

This is a free hands-on workshop utilizing a typical training example. Lunch will be provided.
