LONG TERM DISTRIBUTION OF NON-LINEAR WAVE INDUCED VERTICAL BENDING MOMENTS ON A CONTAINERSHIP

A method is proposed for the long-term formulation of non-linear wave induced vertical bending moments. The non-linearity of the response is represented by an uncertain modelling factor that is deduced from calculations of transfer functions that account for non- linear effects in the prediction of wave induced vertical bending moments. Long term predictions are obtained for a containership hull showing that the response is clearly non-linear and is reproduced in the long-term predictions.
