STAAD.Offshore Automatic Wave Load Generation and Design for Offshore and Floating Structures
STAAD.Offshore allows users to create wave loading and transport loads on offshore structures.
What's New in STAAD.Offshore, Build 3.0.0
File Association STAAAD.Offshore can now be launched by double clicking on the STAAD.Offshore project file.
The Appurtenance and Flooded check boxes in the Member Properties dialog have been modified to operate more consistenantly.
Printing has been simplified and redundant menu items removed.
The GUI now tests to make sure that the STAAD model with wave data is not currently locked by another application such as STAAD.Pro before attempting to either create or access the results.
A dialog on the Wave Setting Page to quickly edit the force and mass coefficents has been added.
Wave Module, Version 6.1.5/ 6.1.6
If a current flow is included, the program now checks that there are at least 2 data points defined.
If the Wave Kinematics Factor is not set, the program will report this as an error as it cannot be 0.0.
Marine data, error handling improved if only one data point defined.
Member Mass density display in output file improved.
Transport Module, version 6.1.5
The output file now displays only the STAAD.Pro input file rather than the whole path and filename.
The values for flooded Appertances were corrected in the previous build as it before it used the area of the pipe rather than the filled void for the weight of water in a flooded appertenance.
The transport module now supports models with node and member that have numbers upto 999999.
The Gravity/tilt option in the X and Z directions has been modified such that the result of the maximum effect using the wave position and lag. This was ok for small angles, but at 45 degree rotational amplitudes, this could result in upto 3% errors. Now the effects in X and Z directions have been update to match Y, i.e. by modifying angle not result.
Some user section profiles were not reporting the correct thicknesses of flanges and/or webs.
Fatigue Module, version 3.0.0
The deterministic fatigue module from the Offshore Loading Program has been implemented.
