Abstract

The aim of this study was to investigate the hydroelastic responses on a large container ship and to provide reliable experimental data of the global loads acting on the ship. In this study, Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) models are used to investigate nonlinear wave actions and wave-induced global loads acting on a 10,000 TEU-class container ship. The results from the computational analyses have been correlated with those from model tests. Comparisons of numerical results with experimental results are summarised and discussed.
