HYDROSTAR

Introduction
HydroSTAR is the hydrodynamic software developed by Bureau Veritas to evaluate 1st & 2nd order
wave loads and induced motions of one or several ships or marine structures of any type in deep and
finite water depth.
Capabilities
o RAO calculation for different DOFs in all possible conditions.
o Computation of global wave loads.
o 2nd order low frequency computation in uni-and bi directional waves
o 2nd order drift force calculation for near field and far field conditions.
o Pressure computation at any point.
o Multi-body interaction.
o Sectional force /Moment calculations.
o Dynamic effects of liquid motion in tanks.
o Automatic Transfer of Hydrodynamic pressure loads to FEM.(Hydro-structural coupling)
o Fully interfaced with VeriStar Offshore mooring and structural software
o Short and long term Spectral analysis.








ARIANE 7
OVERVIEW

o Ariane 7 is a multi-body mooring software that simulates mooring systems in static or in time
domain approved by MDN and certified by SHELL and ELF Standards for mooring analysis.
o Static and time domain analysis take into account mooring loads, constant loads and
environmental mean loads, thrusters...

Calculation

o Multi-body calculation in Static and in time domain;
o Non symmetrical hydrodynamic data;
o Multi-component mooring lines;
o Drift loads models adapted to any water depth:
o Newman approximation
