109: Buoy

Linear static stress analysis of a buoy design. 4 load cases conducted based on different loading conditions. All element types (beam, plate and solid) were used in the analysis, for the appropriate parts. As the resulting stresses in the model were well above the yield strength of the materials used, recommendations were given to modify the design.
