Known bugs in version 11.3c

OrcaFlex

  • Simulation files with lines experiencing seabed suction (at the time at which the sim file was saved) would not reload if any of the lines in question used seabed tangential resistance profiles or decoupled seabed friction. Seabed suction forces can only arise when using the nonlinear soil model.

This bug will be fixed in 11.3d.

OrcaWave

  • Models with dipole panels may have given incorrect results. The bug was more likely to be triggered for larger values of the length tolerance. Models using the default value for this tolerance are unlikely to have been affected.
  • A nonzero heel angle for a body with xz symmetry caused an incorrect symmetry type to be applied to a control surface mesh file. Similarly nonzero trim angle for a body with yz symmetry. The defect in the control surface would be clearly visible in the mesh view for an affected model.

These bugs will be fixed in 11.3d.
