Poseidon

Poseidon is an in-house FE software, especially useful to calculate wave-induced loads. It is coupled to Flex5 for calculation of wind turbine loads. It is also coupled other software like ANSYS, WaveLoads for advanced numerical simulations.
Poseidon is built for bottom-fixed offshore structures, especially lattice structures such as jackets, tripods, …. Focus of recent research are fatigue design and wave loadings as well as structural response in general.

Remarks
Poseidon is coupled to other software, such as FLEX5. This allows for fully-coupled simulations of offshore wind turbines.
