Hydrodynamic Modeling of Moored Ship Motion in an Irregular Domain

In this study, a hydrodynamic model for the analysis of moored ship motion is presented in a realistic harbor with highly irregular geometry. An accurate description of the harbor geometry, bathymetry and the associated wave's characteristics such as diffraction, refraction and partial reflection is required for the analysis of moored ship motion. Further, Fluid domain is divided into bounded, unbounded or open sea and ship region. In each region, wave field is determined by using Boundary Element Method (BEM) with the corner contribution and Chebyshev point discretization. Then, the hydrodynamic coefficient such as added mass and damping coefficients were determined based on the equation of motion with six degree of freedom, which represent the six different component of moored ship motion as surge, sway, heave, roll, pitch and yaw. The current numerical model is validated through previous well defined model based on moored ship motion. Moreover, current numerical scheme is implemented on realistic Pohang New Harbor (PNH), which is situated in Pohang city, South Korea to analyze the wave field in ship region under the various resonance frequencies for monochromatic incident waves.
