Weather ForecastOMF can use various sources of weather forecast. This example shows a traditional forecast sheet as provided to the ships crew by the forecasting service. The OMF can use this as input or setup a direct link to the metoecean service.
ProcessingWhen the new weather forecast is received all forecasted environmental conditions are defined as a loadcase and run in time domain or frequency domain through a dynamic model of the operation to simulate the behaviour in the forecasted conditions. This run will be done on our servers and the results will be checked by an experienced Naval Architect before the results are sent to the ship.
OMF ReportA summary table showing the utilisation of the operational limits will be presented together with the weather forecast. This information will show the offshore crew the actual forecasted behaviour of the ship or offshore installation.
If required detailed reports can also be generated showing the motions or loads of each item of interest.
Motion forecast plotThis example shows a graphical representation of the forecasted system utilisation over time.
The report can be costum build for the client or the standard report can be used.
