AN ESTIMATION OF HYDRODYNAMIC FORCES ACTING ON SHIP HULL IN OBLIQUE MOTION

This paper examines a prediction method to estimate the lateral force and yaw moment acting on a ship hull in oblique motion considering the frame line configuration. The vortex model was combined with Fuwa's method which was based on slender body theory. The hydrodynamic forces acting on three types of model ship: a cargo ship, a VLCC with V-frame aft part and a VLCC with U- frame aft part, were investigated. Good agreement was achieved in the comparison between the estimated hydrodynamic forces and the measured hydrodynamic forces.
