SHIP MOTIONS AND SEA LOADS IN RESTRICTED WATER DEPTH

The influence of the sea bottom on ship motions and sea loads is examined. It is described how to calculate the vertical motions and loads for a ship with non-zero forward speed in regular waves by use of strip theory and fluid finite element method. Results of such calculations are shown. The effects of shallow water are significant as is seen from several figures.
