    Dear All...... I'm a newbie here. Doing motion analysis of a semi. (typical 2 pontoons- 6 column structure). I'm using Ansys APDL for modelling and meshing and then doing a first order hydrodynamic analysis using AQWA. I could generate a .DAT file. I have my first order added mass and damping. I dont know how to set up the .dat for 2nd order analysis to generate a full QTF(Quadratic transfer Function). Please help. I've uploaded my .dat file for reference.
