A general formulation is given of the hydrodynamic forces on a ship, oscillating about a state of rest in six degrees of freedom in response to excitation by a harmonic wave in shallow water. A method is described to obtain a numerical approximation of the velocity potential, describing the flow around the moving ship by means of a distribution of discrete three-dimensional sources. With this method it is possible to take the influence of a quay into account. Calculated values of wave excited forces, hydrodynamic coefficients and motions of a 200,000 tdw tanker in shallow water are presented and compared with experimental results.
