COMPUTER PROGRAMS FOR THE PREDICTION OF STRUCTURAL LOADS ON SEMI-SUBMERSIBLES

The Report describes a special purpose computer program, FLUID4A which allows comparison between theoretical and experimental results for a semi-submersible geometry of twin-circular hulls with four columns. FLUID4A is written in FORTRAN, requires about 30k words of storage space and consists of several subroutines which calculate wave loading distributions as well as motion & structural responses.
