ANSYS

If you’ve ever seen a rocket launch, flown on an airplane, driven a car, used a computer, touched a mobile device, crossed a bridge, or put on wearable technology, chances are you’ve used a product where ANSYS software played a critical role in its creation.

ANSYS is the global leader in engineering simulation. We help the world’s most innovative companies deliver radically better products to their customers. By offering the best and broadest portfolio of engineering simulation software, we help them solve the most complex design challenges and engineer products limited only by imagination. 

ANSYS Aqwa

ANSYS Aqwa Image
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. Aqwa has been used extensively in the oil & gas, renewable and general engineering sectors to model installation and use of equipment in open water as well as in harbors or sheltered locations. ANSYS Aqwa comprises two packages: ANSYS Aqwa Diffraction provides an integrated facility for developing primary hydrodynamic parameters required to undertake complex motions and response analysis. Model creation can be performed through ANSYS DesignModeler software or via other ANSYS structural mechanics tools using a provided ANSYS APDL macro. Hydrodynamic analysis results, such as motions and pressures, can be transferred to ANSYS structural mechanics products, ANSYS ASAS or generically defined FE models for subsequent structural analysis. ANSYS Aqwa Suite extends ANSYS Aqwa Diffraction to include analysis capabilities for global performance of moored and/or connected systems subject to random sea states. Simulations may be static or dynamic in frequency and/or time domain. More advanced requirements, such as dynamic position systems and energy dissipation, can be accomplished through a user-defined function. Offers these features: • Stress Analysis Results Transfer • Functional Interface to Microsoft Excel • External Force Dynamic Link Libraries • Coupled Cable Dynamics • Powerful Modeling & Results Interrogation • Multiple Body Articulations • Hydrodynamic Interaction between Bodies • Total Capability for All Hydrodynamic Applications • Modeling Flexibility • Integrated System Click to download Product Brochure ansys-aqwa-brochure
