ESOS supports customers in the maritime and offshore wind sector with advanced engineering solutions by using sophisticated numerical simulation methods.
Depending on the project stage, Boundary Element Methods (BEM) or rather Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) are applied to reliable predict design wave and wind loads. In order to predict both, short and long term responses of maritime structures, statistical approaches are employed. The customer will be able to design and optimize his product for relevant design loads.
Several aspects of the solutions have been extensively validated in research projects such as frequency and time-domain simulations, yielding wave and wind loads acting on ship and offshore structures, and ship motions in seaways.
Effects of hydroelasticity, wave run-ups, green water and viscosity may significantly affect the relevant design load. Thus, ESOS’ expertise includes solving Fluid-Structure Interaction (FSI) and Vortex-induced Vibration (ViV) problems taking into account the relevant physics.
