Abstract

High speed vehicle ferries experience large motions near the bow and in heavy seas wave slam on the bow structure leads to high transient loading. The transient flow field is complicated and in this paper we consider the results of full scale trials and model tests to delineate these large transient loadings. In model testing hydro-elastic simulation is important. It is found that transient hydrodynamic forces can exceed the displacement or weight of the vessel and that these have short durations, typically about half a second for a 2500 tonne vessel.
