NUMERICAL MODELING OF LONG WAVE SHIP MOTIONS

John R. Headland, Ying-Keung Poon

Abstract


This paper presents a state-of-the-art numerical model for ship motion analyses along with an application of the model to a seiche problem in the Port of Long Beach, California. The practical uses of the model are emphasized along with a discussion of the efficacy of the modeling approach as a tool for decision-making.
