RAO and Drift coefficients

Learning objectives

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

  • Understand fundamentals of Response Amplitude Operators (RAO) in AquaSim
  • Understand fundamentals of Drift coefficients in AquaSim
  • Specify relevant parameters
  • Run analysis with the utilization of RAO and Drift coefficients


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.
