Ocean industries such as oil and gas, defence, and marine renewables, face the challenge of costly and risky deployments and operations due to their complex and capital intensive nature. Numerical simulation tools are valuable assets that can be used to anticipate motions and stresses and therefore inform structural and operational design before deployment. Simulation tools that can capture all pertinent hydrodynamic phenomena increase their value by reducing design time, uncertainty, risk and capital associated with a deployment.

Validation of numerical tools is critical to ensure accuracy and reliability. The following paper reviews a framework for simulation of moored, multi-body, floating systems, including the component models employed, the results of a model verification study, and the challenges encountered in the project. Tank test data of a moored horizontal cylinder was provided for the purposes of numerical tool validation.
