DPOSBOW - A Program for Generating a Balance-on-a-Wave Profile from a Bodyplan for the Generation of a Ship Hull Hydrostatic Pressure Load (User's Manual)
DEFENCE RESEARCH ESTABLISHMENT ATLANTIC DARTMOUTH (NOVA SCOTIA)
Pagination or Media Count:
DPOSBOW is an interactive version of the program POSBOW which has been developed for generating a static wave profile from a ship hull bodyplan. The wave profile is produced as a file which can be accessed by the ship hull finite element modelling program SHIPHUL. The wave profile data is used by SHIPHUL to generate a hull pressure load in the format of the finite element program VAST.
