Abstract

This paper presents a frequency domain method for predicting the relative wave elevation due to the hydrodynamic interaction between two floating structures in the beam waves. The strip method has been found to be a practically useful technique to analyze the hydrodynamically coupled motions of two parallel structures in waves. The two dimensional procedure which is an integral equation method is therefore used in this paper. The present study uses the linearized resultant pressure including the interaction effect to calculate the wave elevation. Both diffraction and radiation cases are considered. The relative wave elevation amplitudes along the sea surface between two structures are also analyzed. It was found that some significant waves occur at the coupled resonance of the body motion. Therefore, the water shipping must be considered as an inportant factor for the safety of transferred cargo. (A)
