AquaSim is a result of many years of research at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU). It was first launched in 2002, and up until today the software has been validated from analytical solutions and tank tests. The development of AquaSim started when the industry demanded an analysis tool providing possibilities to simulate structures deforming heavily under the influence of current, winds and waves. The indisputable advantage of the software is that it considers hydroelasticity, which means that structures deform under the influence of external loads. This forms a good basis for compliance studies and realistic calculations.
AquaSim is owned and developed by Aquastructures AS. Aquastructures AS is an engineering company located in Trondheim, Norway. For more information about us, please visit our website Aquastructures.no
