Hydrodynamics and sloshing 
Technical Bulletin 2014


Marine and offshore structures are subjected throughout their operational lifetime to the constant action of water, waves, current and wind. So that hydrodynamic simulation is essential in evaluating both the overall dynamic behaviour and the structural loading and responses of ships and offshore structures.

Although that significant progress has been done over the years (see below paper "20 years of research in hydrodynamic & structure at Bureau Veritas"), some challenges remains as the accuracy requirement steps-up. The following papers are the visible iceberg tip of the BV research. Some build-up on recent work (Green-function, 2nd order loading). Some others tackle with the immediate need of the industry, like issue due to roll motion.
