X-SEA Offshore Load: Steel & Concrete Structure

X-SEA offshore load is waves, currents, wind,an earthquake any other naturally occurring phenomenon, or any combination of those phenomena. Morison equation is used for the calculation of wave load in offshore steel framed structure. The wave pressure (Sarpakaya)for large concrete offshore structures using the linear wave diffraction theory by MacCamy& Fuchs is available for the very big horizontal diameter to wave length of incident waves (D/L>0.2).

Sea State Parameter: Easy User-friendly AUTOCAD Input

A sea state is characterized by statistics, including the wave height, period, and power spectrum with respect to wind, waves and swell. The sea state varies with time, as the wind conditions or swell conditions change.

X-OpenFAST 3.0: Wind Turbine Analysis GUI Software

The OpenFAST by NREL, USA is an integrated software package for wind turbine performance and loading calculation in onshore and fixed/floating offshore wind turbine
Pre & Post Processor of OpenFAST is developed using user-friendly AutoCAD Graphic User Interface (description in the f.
OpenFAST is coupled with X-SEA substructure and independently working on X-SEA AutoCAD.
Fully coupled analysis of wind turbine-tower-substructure-pile can be performed using OpenFAST.
The load cases of OpenFAST is automatically created and combined with X-SEA.
The X-Y graph of OpenFAST will be available.
Geometry of offshore wind turbine support structures is created by drawing tools or Template of AutoCAD
