Title: MOTION TOOL
Abstract:
Motion tool, comprising a computer part with integrated or operatively connected algorithms or look-up tables for modeling the hydrodynamic behavior of a floating or partially or fully submerged structure based on a set of input data comprising weather forecast data and structural load data, said tool further comprises at least one real time motion sensor integrated into or operatively coupled to said structure to follow the motions of said structure. The motion tool is distinctive in that the computer part comprises algorithms or look-up tables for real time calculation of the structural utilization of the structure, critical parts thereof or critical behaviors thereof, operatively coupled for input from the at least one real time motion sensor, for real time calculation of the structural utilization of the structure, critical parts thereof or critical behaviors thereof, in real time comparable to respective capacities or threshold values, generating instruction for action to avoid exceeding structural limitations of said structure or parts thereof if at least one of said limitations are exceeded or is predicted to be exceeded, over a limit for action, and documenting the real time hydrodynamic behavior and structural utilisation of said structure or parts thereof and said generated instruction for action.
