When operating large ships in water depths only slightly greater than the draft, as super tankers at near-shore terminals, it is necessary to know precisely how much clearance is required for safety. Recent developments in hydrodynamics are applied to determine the motions of a ship due to waves and current with draft to depth ratio approaching unity. A computer program written for this purpose is outlined. Computed motions are compared favorably with experimental data.
