Software for loading, stability, stress


WSLP2TM​ is a 3D Windows loading program written in Visual C++ by Ocean Motions.
  • cargo planning and ballast control
  • real-time tank level and draft inputs
  • intact, damaged, grounded
  • finds remedial solutions to refloat or bring upright

Quick Calc™ 
  • instantaneous draft, trim, heel, KG and GM margins, max stress, torsion, deflections as you edit

3D on-the-fly 
  • drafts, trim, heel, KG, GM, GZ, downflooding, ground reaction, stresses, deflections.... 

WSLP2™ reports 
  • Loading detail and summaries
  • Cargo manifests 
  • Drafts when intact, drafts throughout flooding, drafts at damage equilibrium, grounded drafts
  • Comparison of computed to observed/sensed drafts
  • Righting arm curves, tables, dynamic stability 
  • Shear force, bending moment, torsion and deflection distributions 
  • Primary stress distributions, intact and after structural damage
  • Gyradii
 
WSLP2™ advantages:
  • graphical
  • draw, drag and drop new loads
  • attitude graphics show vessel trimmed and heeled
Auto COG
  • LCG, TCG, VCG, FSMT, FSML computed as tank levels, trim & heel change
Riser
  • tension and riser side force
Moorings
  • layout, tensions, moments, catenary, suction piles
Thrusters
  • forces and moments, deployed and retracted
Winds
  • heel for any wind direction and strength
Waves
  • stability and strength in waves
Crane Lifts
  • animated graphic as crane and hook load move
  • instant stability and stress update 
  • instant comparison to maximum allowed KG or GM min
  • monitoring in real-time when connected to sensors
  • pick up and move a load on deck
  • pick up a load from another vessel
  • pick up a subsea load
  • place load elsewhere
  • warning of SWL exceedence
  • simulate response to dropped hook load
Damage
  • Graphical when you don't know where the damage has occured, user draws openings to the sea using the mouse
  • Check Box when you do know which tanks and spaces are damaged, select from the list of tanks, voids, spaces 
  • various stages of inflow/outflow through openings to the sea 
  • equilibrium drafts, trim, heel after all inflow/outflow has ceased 
  • downflood openings, vents automatically detected 
  • damaged GMT, damaged GML, damaged righting arms about any axis of inclination 
  • comparison to damage stability criteria MODU, HSE, IMO, USCG, MARPOL....
Ballast Advice 
  • program automatically computes how much to load in user specified tanks 
Auto Draft 
  • user specifies target draft, program automatically figures out how best to achieve that draft
Auto Trim 
  • user specifies required trim, program automatically relocates loads to achieve this trim
Auto Heel 
  • user specifies required heel, program automatically loads ballast to achieve this heel
Auto Margin 
  • user specifies desired GM or KG margin, program keeps loading til this margin is achieved      
Export
  • to management and financial software, onboard and to shore sites
E-mail
  • daily stability reports all in one concise SL2 file
Links 
  • bi-directional comms to your tank gauging, MetOcean consoles, instruments, sensors
Protocols 
  • COMMS_2000 | OPC | CSV | CLINO-PAK | Kongsberg | SAAB | GE Modbus.........
Units
  • Metric or Imperial, and can be mixed 
References 
  • longitudinal references from a selected Frame, midships, AP or FP
Conventions
  • TCGs can be positive to port or positive to starboard
LWT Trak™
  • track growth in lightweight at sea 
  • track new location of lightweight LCG, VCG, TCG 
  • requires connection to the proprietary sensor, the Ocean Motions CLINO-PAK
