Offshore Floating and Production - Wind and Current Loading
Meeting future energy needs by effectively and efficiently tapping the world’s offshore resources
While resources are vast, offshore projects need to prove their value in a changing market and policy context. The correct prediction of environmental forces is critical in the design and engineering stage of offshore structures, forming a fundamental part across many design areas.
Our exceptional staff is uniquely qualified to help you understand—and adjust—how your offshore project will respond to wind and current. We use state-of-the-art methodology, experimental and numerical tools to conduct the most accurate studies in the industry.
Through Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and wind tunnel testing, RWDI is uniquely positioned to aid clients in enhancing the reliability of offshore platforms and mooring systems.
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)
We begin by engaging thoughtfully with our clients to make sure we fully understand their context and priorities, so we can deliver the technical analysis that’s most effective in helping them realize their objectives. Once we’ve carried out the CFD analysis and shared the findings, we often work with design teams to apply relevant insights. We help you arrive at a design that is safe, optimized, cost-efficient—and highly functional.
Wind Tunnel Testing
In wind tunnel studies at our facilities, we employ precise modeling and simulation techniques. We use advanced, custom modeling tools to quickly and efficiently evaluate design adjustments and address your project’s needs.
