IV. Troubleshooting

Computation by Nemoh

It is quite easy to use NEMOH with Matlab and Tecplot. However, it is also possible

to use NEMOH in command lines, and it could be required for specific calculations

The following drawing recap the main inputs and outputs of NEMOH

I. Define the location of the working folder and some characteristics of

the Mesh file and Mesh the Body

II. Define Calculation options and launch the computation

III. Calculate the motions RAOs / Use the different output files

Running an example : a vertical cylinder

I. Specify mesh file characteristics and mesh the body

A vertical cylinder is an axisymettric shape. As a result, the Matlab routine Aximesh.m could

be used for the purpose.

Only the submerged part needs to be meshed, and because of the revolution, only 3 points

are required (points 1,2 and 3 on the drawing next page).

Aximesh.m can mesh only 1 body, but Mesh.m can mesh several. For more

sophisticated bodies, one should use a CAD software and adapt the Mesh file in the

good format

Running an example : a vertical cylinder

II. Define calculation options and launch computation

The water depth (m), the wave frequency (rad/s) and the direction of the incident waves have to be

written in Nemoh.cal.

Added options (for free surface visualisation, pressure and drift force) could also be written in Nemoh.cal,

see the post Matlab routine for using pressure, free surface elevation and kochin functions output files:

flags in Nemoh.cal + reading on the forum.

Nemoh.m modifies Nemoh.cal, launchs the code and reads the relevant output files.

For the infinite added mass, see IRF.tec

Running an example : a vertical cylinder

II. Calculate the motions RAOs

NEMOH could be used for several purposes in Hydrodynamics. One of them is the response of

a floating body subjected to waves, this is the one which is The Hydrodynamic equation could

be written as:

= / + +

Approximated buoyancy force, radiation force and excitation force.

From these outputs, it is thus easy to calculate a linearised and approximated 1st order motion

RAO. With the Cummins equation in frequency domain, one can obtain:

()

( 2 + () () + )

With A the added mass, B the radiation damping, Fe the excitation force, and Kh the hydrostatic

stiffness.

After this first step, one can develop an analysis in frequency or time domain, with additional

forces (for example viscous forces, moorings restoring force,)

Troubleshooting

The calculation doesnt start or I cant mesh the body.

Make sure the executable versions of the code are located in the correct folders. See below the location of the

executables in Mesh and Nemoh

Solver.exe, Preprocessor.exe, postprocessor.exe

before the calculation. Normalvelocities is created by

preprocessor.exe

Folder created by the user

(when using aximesh.m or

Working folder mesh.m for instance)

At some frequencies, the values of the excitation force and radiation coefficients are unusual, the

curves are not regular (and sometimes could give a negative radiation damping !)

With a BEM, irregular frequencies could appear. Those frequencies correspond to singularities in the system

of equations solved. In the actual version, NEMOH doesnt include additional equations for removing these

singularities.

How could I launch the calculations for only 1 Degree of Freedom ?

The actual Matlab routines launch the calculation for the 6 Degrees of Freedom. For only one, one should run

Nemoh in command lines.

What part of my body should I mesh ? If there is a pretension due to the moorings, how could I take it

into account ?

Only the submerged part at the equilibrum position has to be meshed. If there is an added draft due to a

mooring pretension, one should mesh the new equilibrum position.

This is one of the major limitation of a BEM.
