firstly, thank you for the new and public v8.12 version of FAST, you have worked a lot since previous release!
I would like to know if with this new version is it possible to run with a wind direction of 60 degrees (let’s say) and wave direction of 80 degrees (let’s say) without modifying (recalculating) Wamit matrices (obtained every 20 degres)?, … better explained:
does wind direction has to be aligned with problem’s x-positive direction? This was a must in previous versions of FAST, which forced to recalculate Wamit matrices depending the wind/wave misalignment for non-symmetric floating platforms.
I ask this because I read: “Wind propagates in arbitrary directions” in the FAST v8.12.00a-bjj document.
Thank you for your time!
