As I did use the AQWA to model and solve the dynamic response of the NAUTILUS-10 semi-submersible platform in frequency domain, e.g., the added mass and radiation damping，I found the non-zero values of these properties for the non-diagonal items, i.e., the coupling items on the direction of 45, 46, 56, as shown in the figure below. In these two figures, the“x454656_”represents the simulation data from the platform report and the other three curves are our simulations. As a platform with symmetric geometry and mooring line distribution, the coupling items should be zeros. We are curious why the non-zero values exist on these three coupling items. Can you help to find the problem and give your suggestions. Thank you!

Your stucture is indeed symmetrical but your mesh is not. So this is likely introducing small numerical errors. A way to check this is to generate the roll-roll and pitch-pitch damping and check that these above coefficients are small compared to the diagonal terms.
A possible solution would be to model a 1/4 of the structure and mesh it and use the SYMX and SYMY.
Note that the wave directions should be within this quarter (ie, 0-90deg) and you won’t be able to visualize the pressure and motion but you can use AqwaGS instead.
I hope this helps.
