HydRA Validation

HydRA Validation

The simulation software HydRA has been validated against WAMIT. The following presentation shows the comparisons between HydRA and WAMIT for the following quantities in both single body and multi-body scenarios:

  • Added Mass

  • Radiation Damping

  • Diffraction Force (Froude-Krylov + Scattering)

  • Response Amplitude Operator (RAO)

The input files, output files and complete set of plots can be accessed from the google drive folder here.
