Introduction to ANSYS Aqwa


The course will cover the general use of features within the Aqwa software, through both the Workbench interface and direct use of the solver. A mixture of lectures and workshops will provide instruction on model set-up, diffraction analysis, static and dynamic motions analyses for a series of typical marine and offshore configurations.


  • No previous knowledge of ANSYS Aqwa is required.
  • Some knowledge of naval architecture or offshore engineering is desirable.

Target Audience: Engineers and Designers

Teaching Method: Lectures and computer practical sessions to validate acquired knowledge. A training certificate is provided to all attendees who complete the course.
