Viking Systems provides motions and load prediction assessments on vessel designs to ensure that the vessel and its equipment can withstand the motions and loading when subjected to a defined set of requirements as defined in specifications and wave data for the project.  The motions are calculated using advanced frequency domain and time domain hydrodynamic programs to simulate the response of a vessel in a number of wave environments to understand the performance typically involving:

  • Wave environment, i.e. wave heights and periods

  • Wave spectrum type and parameters

  • Vessel loading conditions

  • Vessel Headings in waves

  • Comparison to model tank testing results
