An arbitrary time to steady state of 30 sec and 1.5 seconds per time step is ANSYS Verification Manual . ANSYS Release 9.0 . 002114 . © SAS IP, Inc. 1–349 VM158 selected for the slow dynamics. The mass damping value α determines the bouncing (if any) before the final steady state solution. An approximate α value is determined from F/MV where the force F = CV and damping C 2 = αM. The force F is the out-of-balance force (buoyancy force (1 / 4 ρw g π d b ) minus the buoy weight) for the initial position pushing the buoy into the water, M is the mass of the buoy, and V is an estimated average velocity (0.1 m/sec). Based upon these approximations, α ≈ 3 sec-1. Results Comparison Target Deflection , m ANSYS Ratio -.312 -.312 1.000 Figure 158.2 Displacem...
