We were delighted to welcome Johannes Palm from Sigma Energy Marine and Claes Eskilsson from Research Institutes Sweden, who visited COER to give a workshop to introduce the simulation tool MoodyMarine, developed to help meet some of the demands for early stage development of MRE devices.

MoodyMarine extends the previously released mooring module MoodyCore (Discontinuous Galerkin Finite Elements) with linear radiation-diffraction bodies, integrated pre-processing workflows and a graphical user interface. It is a C++ implementation of finite element mooring dynamics and Cummins equations for floating bodies with weak nonlinear corrections.
