Modelling loads of steady current and waves with Abaqus Aqua

Posted by Christine Obbink-Huizer on Jul 25, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Offshore structures are often loaded due to water and wind. The loads on the structure may vary in time and with position. It is possible to specify such loads in Abaqus directly. When applying these types of loads to beams, it may be easier to use Abaqus/Aqua.
Within Abaqus/Aqua the environment of a structure can be defined including a steady current, waves and a wind profile. Based on this environment, loads due to drag, buoyancy and inertia can be defined.
The Abaqus/Aqua options are not available from the CAE. In this blog, I will show how to define a current and Airy waves and apply a drag load based on this using the keyword editor.
