    Attempting load mapping from ANSYS AQWA 13.0 to Structural in order to examine stress / fatique etc.

    I have came across several limitations, including it is not possible to load map wind / irregular waves / fluid cargo / mooring analysis.

    It IS possible to model these in AQWA but these will not factor in the load mapping process to transfer to Structural.

    Are there any other software out there which will be able to complete this whole ship analysis?
