Ship motion using a high Froude number time domain strip theory


Holloway, DS and Davis, MR, Ship motion using a high Froude number time domain strip theory, Journal of Ship Research, 50, (1) pp. 15-30. ISSN 0022-4502 (2006) [Refereed Article]


High-speed strip theories are discussed, and a time domain formulation making use of a fixed reference frame for the two-dimensional fluid motion is described in detail. This, and classical (low-speed) strip theory, are compared with the experimental results of Wellicome et al. (1995) up to a Froude number of 0.8, as well as with our own test data for a semi-SWATH, demonstrating the marked improvement of the predictions of the former at high speeds, while the need to account for modest viscous effects at these speeds is also argued. A significant contribution to time domain computations is a method of stabilizing the integration of the ship's equations of motion, which are inherently unstable due to feedback from implicit added mass components of the hydrodynamic force. The time domain high-speed theory is recommended as a practical alternative to three-dimensional methods. It also facilitates the investigation of large-amplitude motions with stern or bow emergence and forms a simulation base for the investigation of ride control systems and local or global loads.
