A Numerical Simulation Method for Predicting Global and Local Hydroelastic Response of a Ship based on CFD and FEA Coupling

In this paper, a simulation method for predicting global and local hydroelastic response of a ship which couples CFD and FEA is developed and validated. By comparing the prediction with linear/nonlinear strip method, 3D panel method and towing tank test results under various wave conditions in terms of rigid body motions and slamming impact pressure, the effectiveness of the CFD-FEA coupling method is confirmed. The hydroelastic behavior, so-called the whipping moment, evaluated from the CFD-FEA coupling method is further validated by comparing with nonlinear strip method, 3D panel method and tank test results. Finally, the proposed method is applied to a realistic large container ship structure in severe waves. The structural response of the double bottom structure subjected to global and local bending moments is investigated.
