Post-Processing Static Processes Post-Processing Static Processes

When one is post-processing a static process, two commands are available. Both of these commands have a single option:


     -EVENTS, E_BEG, E_END, E_INC

Here, E_BEG and E_END are the beginning and ending event numbers for which the results will be computed, and E_INC is an event increment.

The corresponding form of the REPORT command is:

     REPORT,  -OPTIONS

The only option available for reporting is -EVENTS

The first considers the event number, the pitch angle, the roll angle, the hook height, (i.e., the elevation of the hook above the waterplane (feet or meters)), the hookload (bforce), the total ballast (bforce), the ballast in flooding compartments (bforce), the bottom clearance (feet or meters), and the maximum tension in one element of the harness (bforce). The form of this command is:


     POSITION, -OPTIONS

and the only available option is:


     -EVENTS, EVE_BEGIN, EVE_END, EVE_INC

Alternately, the results available with the STABILITY command are: the event number, the waterplane area (ft**2 or m**2), the transverse GM (feet or meters), the longitudinal GM (feet or meters), the error in the vertical force on the jacket (bforce), the displacement (bforce), the virtual CG of the jacket, (i.e., the location of the center of the jacket weight and hookload), and the jacket center of buoyancy, which should have the same X and Y coordinates as the virtual CG. The form of this command is:


     STABILITY, -OPTIONS

The only option is:


     -EVENTS, EVE_BEGIN, EVE_END, EVE_INC
