Multiple Body Articulations

ANSYS AQWA software has the ability to handle articulated structures, up to a maximum of 50 structures and 50 articulations. This permits modeling of combined hydrodynamic and mechanical dynamic configurations. Articulations can have stiffness, friction and damping included. If the mechanical connections are represented as tubes, these are allowed to become wholly or partially submerged and Morison-types forces are calculated.
