DOOLINES is an object-oriented framework that facilitates the development of systems that perform nonlinear static and dynamic analysis of thin marine structures, such as flexible risers, SCR, umbilical cables, hose floats, and mooring lines. The following typical risers systems can be generated, among others: Lazy Wave, Lazy S, Step Wave, Step S, Free Hanging.
DOOLINES enables the rapid development of reusable, extensible, modular systems adapted to specific needs. It can be easily integrated into already available systems, since it can be used as a software component. The framework allows simulation in shared and distributed memory systems, time-adaptive strategies, gathering and analysis of statistical measures, and vortex induced vibrations. Systems DOOLINES is currently integrated in four systems: TPN, Dynasim, Prea3D and VisGas, and new functionalities are immediately available to those systems.
