Abstract | A 2-D time-domain numerical coupled model is developed to obtain an efficient method for nonlinear wave forces on a fixed box-shaped ship in a harbor. The domain is divided into an inner domain and an outer domain. The inner domain is the area beneath the ship and the flow is described by the simplified Euler equations. The other area is the outer domain and the flow is defined by the higher-order Boussinesq equations in order to consider the nonlinearity of the wave motions. Along the interface boundaries between the inner domain and the outer domain, the volume flux is assumed to be continuous and the wave pressures are equal. Relevant physical experiment is conducted to validate the present model. It is shown that the numerical results agree with the experimental data. Compared with the coupled model with the flow in the inner domain governed by the Laplace equation, the present coupled model is more efficient and its solution procedure is simpler, which is particularly useful for the study on the effect of the nonlinear wave forces on a fixed box-shaped ship in a large harbor. © 2010 Chinese Ocean Engineering Society. |
