Nonlinear wave-body interactions by the chimera laplace method Conference Paper uri icon


  • A multi-block numerical method is presented for the simulation of floating body motion affected by incident linear and fully nonlinear waves. The simulation is acquired by the Laplace method which is a potential flow solver using the Finite Analytic Method (FAM) developed by Chen (1995). A ship hull has fixed, prescribed, and freely floating motions with incident waves. Fully nonlinear waves are generated using prescribed and freely floating ship hull. In order to investigate nonlinear free surface wave interaction, the ship hull is oscillated in sway or heave directions while incident wave is approaching to the ship. Furthermore, the freely floating ship moving with three degree of freedom in heave, sway, and roll is implemented.
