Proposition for Simplified Calculation of a Roll Motion of Ship in Waves with Partially Flooded Compartments
Keywords:Seakeeping, Modelling, Roll motion, Ship in waves, Partial flooding
This paper contains a description of a numerical model for calculating behaviour of ships in waves. There are many models available, but the one described here can be characterised with a set of parameters that have a decisive impact on the final values of roll motion amplitude and frequency. In this paper, it is shown how a fitting of a standard-shape hull characterised by certain readily available parameters affects the final roll and frequency of the motion. In addition, calculations for a flooded tank were made, and a range of results for the maximum dynamic heeling forces from this tank is shown. This calculation can further be verified for a range of hull dimensions and geometries to present a viable method to the industry.
