Hydrodynamic analysis

For vessel or equipment design and marine operations

Vuyk delivers a practical approach to hydrodynamics during vessel and equipment operations that can be applied to design, optimisation or operations.

  • Simplified modelling when possible, complex when required
  • Integrated knowledge of marine operations, equipment and vessels
  • Practical experience combined with theoretical background
  • Translation of results into practical advice
  • 3D diffraction, time domain simulation and CFD

Complex designs or operations require thorough analysis

Vuyk combines its hydrodynamic expertise with extensive experience in vessel and equipment design, and marine operations engineering, including structural analyses studies. Vessel, equipment or operations suitability, and required modifications are considered and can be included.

Examples include:

  • single or multibody motion analyses
  • hydrodynamic loads for global hull analysis
  • dynamic load analyses for moorings or risers
  • cable-lay analyses
  • DP analyses
  • workability analyses
  • (deepwater) lifting analyses
  • caisson installation analyses

Tools and settings to suit the purpose

Vuyk uses and combines 3D diffraction (AQWA) with simulation software for offshore marine systems (Orcaflex) and CFD (STAR CCM+).
Vuyk uses the above tools to tackle numerous problems on a daily basis, and have practical experience of their capabilities. Furthermore, Vuyk does not hesitate to stretch these capabilities to the absolute limit.
