Offshore hydrodynamics

In addition to hydrodynamic basin tests, Zelin can contribute to digital studies, as well as the design of offshore structures (oil platform, wind turbine, etc.).

In offshore conditions, hydrodynamics is the main constraint. This remains very difficult to be faithfully reproduce by experimentation. Digital simulation makes it possible to consolidate the analysis and design of your offshore infrastructure by reproducing very varied and exhaustive sea conditions.

The applications here particularly include:
• Wave impact analysis
• Structural studies (Vortex Induced Motion)
• Vibration / Fatigue analysis
• Damping of mooring lines
• Risk prevention
