As part of my undergraduate thesis work at the Department of Ocean Engineering, IIT Madras, I rendered a 3D surface model of an oil barge using AutoCAD and MultiSurf. The hydrodynamic forces on the vessel were then estimated in WAMIT to analyze its motion characteristics. These are required to ensure the safety and economic viability of the vessel.
