Lloyd's Register joined WILS II (Wave Induced Loads on Ships) Joint Industry Project. The aim of this JIP was to investigate the hydroelastic responses of 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 undertaken by MOERI (Maritime and Ocean Engineering Research Institute, Korea). Finally the global effects of springing and whipping acting on large container ships are discussed and commented upon.
