How are the seismic load is calculated in AutoPIPE Vessel?
The force (fr,ho) as per the formula is in (N) and printed out in (daN) in the report.
fr,hor = mi ui D ach => (kg) (mm) (mm-1) (m/s2) = kg m/s2 = N
Example of the calculation (the printed values are rounded/truncated in the Report):
fr,hor = 46.08358 * 0.019699505 * 2049.837 * 4.767313
= 887.1449 N
= 88.71449 daN (rounded to 88.71 daN in the Report)
