    Hello everyone,
    I am a new member of this forum and it helps me a lot. I have a question concerning the seakeeping analysis of SWATH. I´d like to compare experimental results with numerical one and I am curently using maxsurf/seakeeper.
    It seams that seakeeper is unable to measure the hull of a SWATH. I don´t know if I am right or not.
    Somebody know a software which can give me the RAO for SWATH vessel ?
    Thank you,

    VisualSMP incorporates a special method for seakeeping analysis of SWATHs. Tons of panel codes have capability to analyze SWATHs. I've seen LAMP used for that purpose before with apparent success (note: LAMP is time-domain only).
