OrcaFlex 9.5 released

We are very pleased to announce the 2011 major release of OrcaFlex, version 9.5. As always it takes time to produce and despatch installation CDs but clients with up-to-date MUS contracts can expect to receive the software in the first half of November.

The major enhancements introduced in 9.5 are as follows:

  • Slam loads.
  • Wave drift damping and¬†manoeuvring loads for vessels.
  • P-y models to model lateral seabed reactions for vertical lines.
  • Equivalent line modelling.
  • Support for SHEAR7 version 4.6.
  • Improved automation capabilities.
  • Replays can track and follow the movement of objects.
  • Docked model browser.
  • External functions: now available with the implicit solver and can be written in Python.
