Objectives
To obtain rational understanding and quantitative simulation of ship-generated dispersive waves in the far field, to the extent of wave generation, propagation, and interaction with structural surfaces, due to multiple ship motion inside a bounded harbour of finite water depth. It is also concerned with evaluation of wave reflection at harbour boundaries and stage of wave agitation in high wave areas.
