Because GHS is fundamentally a simulator of floating/grounded objects, it is well-suited to salvage work. It readily simulates salvage procedures so that the salvor can plan a strategy for refloating a stranded vessel.
Some of the features that make GHS particularly useful to salvage engineers are:
Three modes of tank damage simulation are available:
See also Oil Spill Calculations and Salvage Brochure page.
- Flooded - where sea water occupies the tank at the same level as outside the ship.
- Damaged - where a limited amount of liquid escapes depending on the pressure at the point of damage.
- Air bubble - where gas above the liquid contributes to the pressure governing the level inside the tank.
