Loads on platform


I am new to FAST and I am trying to simulate a monopile at 20m depth. I used the Test19 and one of the offshore example from a workshop to build my input files. I want to calculate the hydrodynamic load on the platform; while I am not getting any errors I get invalid at PtfmFxi to PtfmMxt (all results are zero). Any help is appreciated.


Dear Nick,

The platform load outputs PtfmFxi, etc. available in FAST v7 have been removed from FAST v8 and replaced with similar outputs in HydroDyn, SubDyn, and MAP. For example, output HydroFxi in HydroDyn specifies the total integrated hydrodynamic force along the xi axis.

Best regards,

Thank you for the reply Jason.
