I have been asked to determine the center of force for wave loads, and have been advised to use the load summation report generated from the seaoci file rather than from the saclst file.
When I look at the seaoci file for my analysis, all I see is the summation of loads and the moments about the origin.
I can use the forces and moments listing in the seaoci file to calculate the force centers.
However, is there some way to have a load summation report generated in the seaoci file that is similar in format to the load summation report in the saclst file?
Try File > Generate Report and select either the Load Summation or Load Combination Summation Report. These reports will have the Force, Moment and Center of Force Values listed for all load conditions and load combinations respectively.
