Future Developments

We are still finalising the the exact content of the next release of OrcaFlex. However, over the next 24 months we aim to include as many of the following features as possible:

  • Frequency domain.
  • Advanced constraint modelling: hinges/articulations/pivots/constrained dofs etc.
  • Line results reporting at nodes in addition to mid-segments.
  • Better results reporting for static state analyses.
  • Line payout, especially for modelling inertia and drag on winches, pipelay etc.
  • Restarts.
  • Lateral seabed resistance modelling, thermal/pressure expansion, pipelines.
  • Software licensing rather than dongles.

Please note that the above list is not a definite commitment. Some features take longer (or occasionally shorter!) to develop than originally estimated.
