To conduct research analytically as well as numerically on the hydrodynamic interaction between two immersed bodies involving translation, rotation and vibration. Fundamental solutions for three-dimensional non-spherical bodies will be derived by means of transformations of harmonics between two corresponding coordinate systems. Properties and dynamic behavior of a two-body system will be determined by solving the dynamical equations of motion. Experimental verification of some basic analytical and numerical results on the trajectories of floating bodies will also be conducted.
