Abstract
SHIPOP (SHIP OPerability) is a new program developed by DREA for predicting ship operability in waves and wind. Given limiting motion and aircraft operability criteria, SHIPOP can compute limiting conditions for ship operability and percent time operable for a specified operating area and season. Operability assessments can be performed for both monohull and SWATH ships. Special features of the program include motion-induced interruptions (sliding and tipping events) as operability criteria and dynamic wind effects on tipping.
