Simulation of wave effect on ship hydrodynamics by RANSE

Qiuxin Gao, Dracos Vassalos

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


The application of advanced numerical methods based on the solution of RANSE and VOF equations on the prediction of ship hydrodynamics is presented. The test cases selected are restrained and free oblique motions of a container ship with the effect of incoming wave. The computed and measured results are compared. The general agreements between calculations and experiments are satisfying.
