INTERFERENCE EFFECTS BETWEEN LARGE CYLINDERS IN WAVES

This paper describes interference effects between large cylinders in waves. Reliable predictions of wave-induced forces on large offshore structures are important from technical and economic standpoints. This paper offers a prediction method that reduces computer costs by a factor of several hundred when faced with the specific problem of two neighboring circular cylinders, rather than bodies of arbitrary geometry. Theoretical predictions were confirmed by experiments in a model wave basin.
