Summary:
Underwater systems behavior prediction has become an important success factor in the design and implementation of marine systems. Most marine systems involve cables for mooring, deployment, recovery, or towing; however, estimating the response of these systems is difficult because of their non-linear behavior. Thus, numerical models are used to simulate submerged cabled systems. At FAU, many mission specific cable simulations have been developed, but no single, all encompassing software package exists. This thesis develops a Windows(c) based software package to quickly and easily create FEA models of underwater cabled systems and simulate their response. The model is based on a discrete finite element analysis using linear elements. The software provides fully integrated and interactive Graphical User Interfaces with a 3-dimensional graphical display of the model, and integrates adapted data analysis and visualization tools. The software provides an easy and efficient way to simulate an underwater system involving cables.
