*2jonswap:*

This test shows what gamma values for 2JONSWAP spectrum MOSES calculates. For a 2JONSWAP spectrum an input peakedness factor is is automatically calculated by MOSES based on DNV guidlens.

*BGNREF:*

This test illustrates the difference in frequency domain results when using a crude Three Dimensional Diffraction mesh, and then refining it automatically. See TRIBOX for a similar test.

*BOXREF:*

This test shows how frequency domain results differ when refining a Three Dimensional Diffraction mesh. The mesh panel size is first defined by minimum size, then as a fraction of wave length.

*CYL:*

*DIFBOM:*

This is a Three Dimensional Diffraction test of a square vessel defined with an input mesh.

*DIFBOX:*

This test computes the wave drift force on a 90m x 90m box with a draft of 40m. These results can be compared with those reported in a paper by Faltinsen and Michelsen, "MOTIONS OF LARGE STRUCTURES IN WAVES AT ZERO FROUDE NUMBERS", Det Norske Veritas, Publication No 90 - Sept. 1975.

*DIFBOX_FAR:*

This test computes the wave drift force using the far field method of Newman (1967) on a 90m x 90m box with a draft of 40m. These results can be compared with those reported in a paper by Faltinsen and Michelsen, "MOTIONS OF LARGE STRUCTURES IN WAVES AT ZERO FROUDE NUMBERS", Det Norske Veritas, Publication No 90 - Sept. 1975.

This is a test of the spectral linearization multiplier.

*MAX_SIZ:*

This test checks the ability of the program to solve a large number of headings and frequencies.

*MAT_TEST:*

This test checks MATRICES command to show that it does, in fact, add the viscous damping.

*MOVTST:*

This test checks the ability of the program to compute frequency domain results before and after a body has been rotated.

*MSHPLT:*

This test generates a diffraction mesh using the optional mesh control parameters. The undocumented -time option is used to report the CPU time it takes to read in the model.

*MSPBAS:*

This is a Morison's equation test on the Saratoga semisubmersible. The three MSP* files are performed on the same model of the Saratoga.

*MSPLIN:*

This is a test of the linearization of the RAO equations based on a defined wave spectrum.

*MSPNLI:*

This is a test of the spectral frequency response computations.

*NOYAW:*

This test provides frequency domain results for a vessel that has not been yawed, for comparison with the YAW test.

*OB:*

This test checks the use of an "obstacle".

*RESP:*

This test produces the frequency response at a user input point.

*SFBOX:*

This test performs a diffraction analysis on a box. The drift data are reported twice. The first time the drift data is computed using g_press and the second time the drift data includes the effect of the response operators.

*SHALLOW:*

This test checks Three Dimensional Diffraction in shallow water.

*SPEED:*

This test checks the computing of RAO with forward speed.

*SPREAD:*

This is a test of wave spreading of a sea spectrum.

*STRIP:*

This is a sample of a barge being analyzed in the frequency domain using strip theory.

*TRIBOX:*

This is test a similar to BGNREF, except the hull shape is triangular.

*VDTEST:*

This is a test of the undocumented Tanaka load group commands.

*YAW:*

This tests the ability of the program to properly compute frequency domain results for a body which has been yawed prior to the hydrodynamic computation.

*YAWH:*

This tests the ability of the program to properly compute frequency domain results for hulls which have been rotated.
