    Hi friends,

    I was just wondering if anyone of you has had experience in analyzing the dynamic stability (checking the stability during the full procedure and establishing the worst condition) of flat top barge-jack ups combined during load on/off of the payload? What software would you recommend for this? I dont think that the conventional software like GHS, Napa etc are capable of doing this complex analysis.

    Could someone help?

    Thanks, Karl.

    Don't know if you received any answers but GHS can calculate heavy lifts. Although I'm not sure what you concern is, the stabilty of the lifting vessel or the lifted vessel?
