Model Component

Previous page Next page

The Model component is a powerful and intuitive tool for constructing 3D models of pipe laying scenarios. In this example the Model component is named ‘Model’. The Seabed for the Model (in this case ‘Rigid Seabed’) is selected and the Water Depth is defined as 750m. The following sections describe the various elements added to the model.

 

Vessels

Two Vessel components are added, ‘Tug(1)’ and ‘FPU(1)’ respectively. The properties for these vessels are given in the tables below.
