AbstractLarge Amplitude Motion Program is a computer program that calculates forces and tensions placed on an ocean structure by sea conditions. Through simulation of the ship/object in the storm these values are generated. Running a number of different cases and comparing the computed values with experimental values completed tests. Experimental values completed at a pervious date by Hermanski. Values were very similar but the slight difference was due to the restriction place on the ship by the program. The program gave ideal results for it was able to maintain a steady speed and course direction. Once results were formed they were used in uncertainty analysis for validation and verification. They were also used to conduct convergence grid studies. With the completion of 180 runs it was proven that this program has potential for future shipbuilding and Ocean/Naval studies.
