Upon completion of this case study, you will be able to:

  • Model a bottom weight placed on the seabed attached to a mooring rope
  • The fundamentals of Bottom parameters in the Export menu
  • Basics of spring type (Offloaded, Buoy)
  • Evaluate the displacement of bottom weight in AquaView


The tutorial presents a simple case study with the purpose of demonstrating functionality in AquaSim.

It is assumed that the user is familiar with the basic principles of modelling and specifying material parameters in AquaEdit, as well as conducting analyses. If you are looking for an introduction to AquaSim we advise you to start with the Basic program tutorials
