Marine and Subsea Systems

ANSYS uniquely provides simulation software and experience in an integrated solution set for offshore, marine and subsea systems. The capabilities cover a broad range of  applications involving naval architecture, propeller and vessel design, vortex induced motion (VIV), subsea power, and boosting, mooring, lifting, towing, and installation.

Fluid-Structure interaction of jumper cable

Fluid — structure interaction of jumper cable. The irregular pumping of gas-liquid flows causes deformation and interaction of the jumper.
