Scope of Work
In total there are eight options one can use to compute the location of the center of gravity when a compartment is not filled completely (slack). This is a result of approximate methods used in the past due to limited computational power. Users are always to implement the -correct option. This document explains how the -app none and -correct options in the &COMPARTMENT command affect the calculated…
SACS CONNECT Edition V13.0 – CL release includes enhancements including:
CONNECT licensing is Bentley's new licensing model, providing enhanced security and optimized value for your Bentley Subscriptions. It is integrated with Bentley's Identity Management System (IMS) and the Bentley CONNECT technology platform to allow near real-time reporting of usage, improved alert messaging to users and increased…
The purpose of this document is to show what gamma values for 2JONSWAP spectrum MOSES calculate and what is reported when multiple periods are defined with an option "-e_periods". Multiple sea-states with varying mean periods are stored in the database for later use in statistic calculation. After generating hydrodynamic pressure data, RAOs of the vessel is computed. Motion statistics for several…
This document presents a discussion on the -omega option that is part of the &EQUI command. The &EQUI command in MOSES computes a static equilibrium position with a modified Newton method. Also presented is an example when the -omega option in the &EQUI command is used to reach equilibrium.
You can find a good description of the Newton method on Wikipedia. The article in Wikipedia shows…
The MOSES product team is pleased to announce the availability of MOSES CONNECT Edition (Version 10.14.00.12) on the Fulfillment Center.
NOTE: This is an update and will overwrite earlier installations of MOSES 10.13, etc.
Version 10.14 of MOSES includes a Technology Preview of the new MOSES Executive. Installed alongside the classic versions of the MOSES applications, the Executive aims to replace and build on the functionality…
This document explains how to set up and interchange the working units in MOSES.
Two sets of files are used to demonstrate the unit definition and units interchange to assess the longitudinal strength of a barge. The two sets of files can be found on ...\hdesk\runs\samples\how_to directory.
MOSES v10.14 was used in generating results for this work.

The analysis units are specified with the &DIM…
This document explains how the added inertia coefficients and linearized damping coefficients are calculated and reported in MOSES. Often asked questions are also discussed at the end of the document.
MOSES v10.13 was used in generating results for this work.
Frequency Domain Analysis and Output Results
A frequency domain analysis is usually the basis for generating transfer functions (RAOs) for frequency dependent excitation…
The Collapse program has been enhanced to include the effects of both large rotations and large deflections. As a result, the program is now able to predict very large deformations. The Arc-length Iterative approach has been added to help predict unloading behavior at local and global limit points. An…
SACS 11.3 CONNECT Edition release enhancements including:
Mesh quality is important because hydrodynamic results quality is dependent on the mesh quality. The automated mesh refinement feature subdivides the panel model for use as the hydrodynamic mesh. It is customary for several mesh densities to be evaluated as part of the hydrodynamic database assessment. The ability to automatically refine a mesh is intended to allow the user to input a coarse mesh and easily produce refined…
Enhancements to SACS Decommissioning tools
The SACS decommissioning tool has been enhanced to calculate the sum of forces and center of forces enclosed in a volume. The volume is user selectable by using the three axes sliders or typing the volume extents.
Using the load by volume tool described above, the selected volume can be used to “cut” a model and create…
SACS 11.1 CONNECT Edition Update
SACS 11.1 update includes the CONNECT Advisor integration in addition to NORSOK 2013 joint strength check in Collapse and pile capacity visualization in Collapse view. The torsional mass moment of inertia calculations have been added to the DYNPAC module, also the ability to handle all load cases generated for a time history has been added to the SACS Wind Turbine Process. Other updates…
The latest SACS 11.0 CONNECT release includes the following major enhancements:
SACS Precede Decommissioning Tools allows the user to automatically cut the structure at any elevation with weight control for removal purposes.
The SACS Joint Mesh GUI allows the user to effortlessly add stiffing plates to complex non-tubular joints for finite element analysis meshing purposes with full user control for mesh density…
Usually, it is because you have earlier used two monitors, and now that you have switched to one and the dialog box is appearing off the screen. Please reset the dialog box location back to one screen from Precede Settings. Check 'Reset dialog boxes to default locations' and click 'Apply'. Please see the image below.
MOSES 2017 CONNECT Edition updates now available on select
The Bentley MOSES team is pleased to announce the release of MOSES 2017 CONNECT Edition: 10.01.
This new version of MOSES (10.01) includes a technology preview of the far field mean wave drift wave method hydrodynamic calculations and a convolution connector. The convolution connector is intended to be used to model anti-roll tanks.
This update also included…
Be part of this conversation with Georgina Maldonado, MOSES Product Manager, on taking into account the two assets of importance in the loadout process; the cargo being moved and the vessel being loaded.
Modeling semi-submersibles, spars, and other non-ship shaped hulls ready for use in MOSES is still best done in the &SURFACE menu. There are several examples on how to create these types of hulls at the following directory in your installation drive.
C:\Program Files\Bentley\Engineering\MOSES CONNECT Edition V10\hdesk\runs\samples\ves_mod
The RAO type is set by the value in column 5 of the RAO line and are defined as Gravitational accelerations (G’s) when the value is ‘G’, and for displacement it should be "D".
The MOSES output is for displacement, also referred to as motions. The value in column 5 should be written as "D".
This will be fixed in the next update.
General purpose 3D NURBS surface modeling programs like Rhino are widely used and complement the ship-specific modeling and analysis capabilities in MAXSURF. We would recommend the following workflow:
1. Create the initial hull model in MAXSURF Modeler (which has a range of ship-specific modeling and fairing tools and using the other MAXSURF modules to verify stability code compliance and estimate resistance and seakeeping…
