Realism in Simulated Vessel Models

Engineering simulation systems provide simulation of a range of hydrodynamic vessel and rig models with six degrees of motion, giving an excellent level of vessel motion accuracy. This is particularly important in advanced training scenarios, such as close proximity offshore operations, towing and search & rescue operations. Also important for enhanced realism, is that all simulator vessel models have dynamic loading, ballast control and possible integration to load calculators. Use of a sophisticated physics engine supports full interaction including 3D hull collision detection with shore and maritime based objects and vessels. It provides high realism in lines, wires and chains behavior, and calculates in detail the winch load and line forces, for instance, in tug and mooring exercises.

Real-time Hydrodynamic Analysis

Evaluation of students can be incorporated as part of the exercise with trigger events, e-coach messages and scores drawn from performance. The entire simulated scenario with all variables is automatically recorded during the exercise. Review and debriefing can include replay of the entire exercise, or a selected segment from any point in the exercise in order to focus on a specific learning objective. The instructor system also features an advanced assessment system for ensuring optimal training and feedback standards regarding real-time dynamics.

Detailed Exercise Areas

To ensure realistic, quality simulation training, it is necessary to have geographical exercise areas that correspond exactly to the environments one will experience in real life. Engineering simulation systems offer a wide library of exercise areas that include radar, depth, buoy, chart and visual files. By using the accurate field chart, exercise areas such as oil fields can be created to fit local requirements for variable operations.
