Re: HydroDyn - example .1, .3 and .hst files

Hi all, For the benefit of future researchers, I will share my finding on how to convert WADAM files to a WAMIT format. To get the .1 and .3 WAMIT format from WADAM, follow these steps: 1. Right-click in wadamrun in the workspace section and click on EDIT. 2. In the edit dialogue box, click on Execu...

Re: HydroDyn - example .1, .3 and .hst files

Dear Jason, Thank you for the reply. On this board, I saw someone developed an Open source hydrodynamic coefficients converter and viewer for FAST. It can read NEMOH and AQUA files and convert it to WAMIT/Hydrodyn format for FAST/OpenFAST. It's called BEMRosetta. Is there something like this for WAD...

Re: HydroDyn - example .1, .3 and .hst files

Dear Jason, I am trying to convert WADAM files into WAMIT file format and I came across your response to getting the solution in quoted text below. However, the solution have been moved from the NWTC links you referenced in your response to provide the solution. Can you pls. point me to the correct ...

Re: Open source hydrodynamic coefficients converter and viewer for FAST

Hi All,
I am trying to convert WADAM.LIS file into WAMIT to be used in OpenFAST. I have been researching for solution to do this and have come across BEMRosetta. Please, can you let me know if I can convert WADAM files to WAMIT format using BEMRosetta?

Many Thanks,
Bayo.

Re: Help running FAST v8 for the first time

Dear Jason, Thanks for your response. I will explore how to run Turbsim to fix this issue. What I meant by bespoke floating platform is the ability to model different floating platform shapes and geometry (apart from TLP, SPAR and Semisub shapes) and still connect to mooring lines. However, on readi...

Re: Help running FAST v8 for the first time

Hi All,

Please is it possible for me to model a different type of floating platform apart from the traditional TLP, Spar and Semisubmersible available as test input files in FAST8? In a nut shell, how can I integrate a bespoke floating platform to work with OPENFAST/FAST?

Kind Regards.

Re: Help running FAST v8 for the first time

Hi all, I am new to FAST and currently trying out FAST v8. I noticed that I can not change the total run time in the TEST24.fst file input file from 60 seconds to say 120 seconds. It comes up with the error below in quote; "FAST_Solution:CalcOutputs_And_SolveForInputs:SolveOption2:InflowWind_Ca...
