Dear Sirs,
My client has a requirement: Saddle support and Anchor bolting shall be designed for loadings due to ship motion. Location of vessel module: x=56.7 y=45.7 z=21.6 ; Transit accelerations(m/s2):Longitudinal=1.7, transverse=2.95, vertical=1.979.
How I can input these data in Pvelite?
plz help me.

Xinwei

Hi Xinwei,

I believe the option that you want is the seismic "G" loading option. This input will allow you to enter in Gx (longitudinal), Gy (vertical) and Gz which is in the transverse direction. Please note that you need to specify Gy as a negative value. This will cause the acceleration to add to the weight and not relieve it as a positive value does.
