HYDRODYNAMICS OF LARGE OBJECTS AT SEA; PART I--HYDRODYNAMIC ANALYSIS

This paper deals with the hydrodynamic forces exerted on a rigid object describing harmonic oscillations under or on a free surface as well as the forces resulting from the interaction of the object held fixed in a train of regular surface waves. The problem is formulated for a body of arbitrary shape in water of finite depth and the development of a numerical scheme for carrying out the calculations is described. An energy balance as well as Haskind's relations are used as a check on the accuracy of the numerical results. Numerical results are presented for a floating sphere, a vertical circular cylinder, and a practical semi-immersed caisson configuration.
