BMT Fluid Mechanics uses many software products in support of its design and operational activities for the offshore oil and gas industry. Some of these are available from BMT under licence. The following engineering software products facilitate the assessment of the ocean wind and wave environment, and the static and dynamic response of fixed and floating systems to that environment.
Wind and wave climate statistics data for the world's oceans. A web database ideal for those who require instant access to world-wide wind speed and wave height statistics for design or operational purposes. Contains significant wave heights, zero crossing periods, extreme wave heights, persistence of storms and calms, etc.
The original worldwide wind and wave climate statistics database! Access to world-wide wind speed and wave height statistics for design or operational purposes. Contains significant wave heights, zero crossing periods, extreme wave heights, persistence of storms and calms, etc.
Quasi-static mooring analysis program for all types of moored offshore structures. Deals with environmental forces, multiple line mooring systems, complex mooring lines (mixed chain/wire), sub-surface or surface buoys, sinker weights, sloping seabed, thruster-assisted systems, gangway and riser deflections (NMD-approved software).
Industry standard 3-dimensional wave diffraction program. Calculates the forces and motions of fixed and floating offshore structures or vessels. Outputs response amplitude operators, phases, and response spectra in irregular waves. Also calculates mean and slowly varying wave drift forces and motions.
Non-linear time domain simulation program suitable for fully dynamic treatment of moored systems or dynamic positioning systems. The characteristics of the dynamic positioning control system can be input. Environmental input can include slowly varying wave drift, wave frequency forces, current and wind gust effects.
Marine dynamics program developed by Orcina Ltd. for static and dynamic analysis of pipelines, risers, mooring systems and subsea hardware in an offshore / marine environment. OrcaFlex is a fully 3D non-linear time domain finite element program.
