AquaSim

– AquaSim is an analysis and simulation tool developed by Aquastructures.

AquaSim is a time-domain FEA-software owned and developed by Aquastructures. Interaction between rigid and flexible structures containing different material, cross-sectional and elastic characteristics is easily obtained. AquaSim is the ideal tool for coupled analysis of larger systems combining hydrodynamic structures, mooring lines and net-panels.

AquaSim is tailored for an efficient workflow. AquaSim will help you develop your system from initial modelling to advanced simulations enabling the optimum solution for any situation. AquaSim is in continuous development with annual releases; the latest release is always at hand through our licensing program. We work closely with users to create customized experiences and tools, enabling work efficiency.

AquaSim presents the results through easy to grasp visualization, which combined with a range of post-processing tools makes reporting productive and time-saving.
