Numerical Analysis of Ship Wave Loads and Structure Strengthen Analysis on a Wind Power Installation Ship
In a typical load condition of wind power equipment Installation ship, using the three-dimensional potential flow theory to prediction the long-term response of wave induced loads. then using the main load control parameters as a basis for the design wave selection, then application of DNV's SESTRA program make the wave-induced directly to the structure to finite element simulation. The results show that the hull structural design can meet the requirements.
