OC7 Phase Ia Setup available

The full setup of the IEA Wind TCP Task 56 (OC7) Phase Ia cases are now available to download on QBlade.org.

These simulations focus on experimental validation of low (difference) frequency viscous loads on FOWT platform designs and developing tuning practices for Morison coefficients. The setup utilizes QBlade’s new NBODY>1 feature to model hydrodynamic interactions of multiple floating bodies.
