Dear Zhou.Lin,

The HydroDyn hydrodynamics module of FAST supports a potential-flow solution (WAMIT interface), a strip-theory solution, or a hybrid combination of those two. For the OC3-monopile (and most any monopile), we model the hydrodynamics via the strip-theory solution, so, no WAMIT model is necessary.
