Hydrodynamics & Mooring
Technical Bulletin 2010


The seven papers in this section explore details of wave loading and global forces induced by fluid motion, with a particular focus on LNG offshore and sea keeping concerning the second-order wave loading in multi-directional seas and hydrodynamic pressure at very high encounter frequencies. The methodology for LNG terminals is presented with support from experimental and numerical investigations of sloshing actions on LNGC tank boundaries. Furthermore, a new theoretical “visco-potential” model based on the introduction of viscous effect in potential flows is developed with application to time-harmonic ship waves. Finally, we present the recent work on modelling complex load-elongation properties of fiber ropes.
