Het hijsen van een last van eem supplyboat. Een simulatie in TUTSIM en Lotus
Report 87.3.OS.2295, Transport Engineering / Offshore Engineering.
In this report a description is presented of the simulation study that has been
executed to study the process of hoisting a load from a moving supply-boat. The
hoisting is supposed to be executed by a crane that is mounted on a fixed
The project has been divided into two parts, with respect to the wave motion
and the motion of the supply-boat.
In the first part, the TUTSIM simulation program is used to establish the
dynamic effects of the hoisting process. At this stage, the motion of the
supply-boat is considered to follow a regular (sinusoidal) wave.
In the second part, the effects of an approximation of an irregular wave
motion have been analysed. This analysis has been done with the program
Lotus 123 and has been focusses mainly on the reliability of hoisting a load
with different hoisting speeds.
Finally, the results for both the regular and irregular wave motion are
compared to the recommendations of Lloyd's Register of Shipping, considering
hoisting offshore loads.
