1.INTRODUCTION TO MOSES HULL MODELLER & STABILITY

MOSES HULL MODELLER:

1. Hull Modeler is a powerful three-dimensional surface modelling system for use in the
field of marine design. It provides you with a clear and familiar environment in which
to work, allowing for systematic experimentation and rapid optimisation of any new
design.

2. Hull Modeler's multiple surface capabilities, allowing any number of surfaces to be


modelled in any given design, offer scope for the creation of a wide range of hull
forms. Combined with the built-in hydrostatic calculations, you have the tools to
experiment with shapes and explore design parameters.

3. Highly accurate output is produced in the form of hull lines, transfer files for other
programs, and comprehensive offsets tables. Data transfer to other programs in the
Hull Modeler suite is from a Hull Modeler design file, alleviating the need for the re-
entry of data once a design has been finalized, and removing the possibility of loss of
accuracy through the use of incomplete hull offset files.

MOSES STABILITY:

1. Stability is a hydrostatics, stability and longitudinal strength program specifically


designed to work with Modeler. Stability adds extra information to the Modeler
surface model. This includes: compartments and key points such as down flooding
points and margin line.

2. Stability’s analysis tools enable a wide range of hydrostatic and stability


characteristics to be determined for your design. A number of environmental setting
options and modifiers add further analysis capabilities to Stability.

3. Stability is designed in a logical manner, which makes it easy to use. The following
steps are followed when performing an analysis:

 Input model
 Analysis type selection
 Analysis settings
 Environment options
 Criteria specification and selection
 Run analysis
 Output

2.STRUCTURAL DESIGN AND ANALYSIS OF AN TENSION LEG PLATFORM
AIM:
To design the Tension Leg Platform and calculation using MOSES.
DEFINITION:
A Tension Leg Platform (TLP) or Extended platform is a vertically moored floating structure
normally used for the offshore production of oil or gas and is particularly suited for water
depths greater than 300 meters and less than 1500 meters.

STRUCTURE PARAMETERS:

 Length – 30 m
 Breadth – 30 m
 Draught – 60 m
 Displacement - 52,000 tonnes

PROCEDURE:
Designing Steps:
Step-1: Open MOSES Hull modeller.
Step-2: Select plan view and focus to plain view.
Step-3: Select line and draw the plan view of a TLP structure using the dimensions given.
Step-4: Select the surface and give extrude command to extrude the surface by using given
dimensions.
Step-5: Use break curve command in all plate and reverse the curve to make skin curve
Step-6: Use circle command and draw circle using given dimension.
Step-7: Trim the surface of circles using trim command.
Step-8: Go to data selected frame of reference and give the value of aft and forward
perpendicular and set to Design waterline (DWL).
Step-9: Save the design and mention name to it.
Step-10: Go to design in data command.
Step-11: Add sections, waterlines and buttock lines etc...
Step-12: Divide the lines according to the given data.
Tank Creation:
Step-1: Open MOSES stability.
Step-2: Go to room definition window and create the tanks according to given data.

Step-3: Start the analysis to get the graph and go to graph window to view it.
Hydrostatics:
Step-1: Go to upright hydrostatics.
Step-2: Go to analysis, and click the draft option, gives the values of draft range.
Step-3: Start analysis, to get the results got to current result window.

Equilibrium:
Step-1: Go to equilibrium.
Step-2: Go to analysis and click the wave form option, put the value of wavelength and wave
height.
Step-3: Start analysis.
K N Values:
Step-1: Go to KN value
Step-2: Go to analysis and select displacement option.
Step-3: Give the values of initial and final displacement.
Step-4: Start analysis, and to get the graph go to graph window option.

RESULT:
Thus we found out the values of tank calibration , GZ curves, Hydrostatics, Equilibrium and
KN values with graphical representation, of the TLP structure design in MOSES.
