FEM AND FSI Simulations of Impact Loads on GRP Subsea Composite Covers

•Current simulation methods to analyze a products behavior in water is to a great extent based onsimplifiedboundray conditions
–Dynamic events often modeled as ”equivalent static”
–Simplifications made by time, not technology, concerns
–Coupled physics effects are often crucial
•This raises a need for new simulation methods
–Fluid Structural Interaction
