VALIDITY OF ANALYTICAL PREDICTIONS OF DECK WETNESS FOR AN OFFSHORE SUPPLY VESSEL IN FOLLOWING WAVES
The deck wetness characteristics of an offshore supply vessel in following waves are predicted analytically and compared with experimentally derived results. It is found that the analytical predictions are conservative given specified conditions. The conservatism of the analytical results is attributed primarily to the influence of dynamic swell-up and incident wave distortion on ship-to-wave relative motion.
