Abstract

The paper presents a strip theory and its correlation with experimental and analytical data on the vertical relative motions of two ships, in close proximity and longitudinally parallel position in oblique waves. The two-dimensional procedure takes account of the hydrodynamic interaction between two cylindrical bodies and utilizes an integral equation method. From the study it was found that the strip method is a useful technique to predict the hydrodynamically coupled motions of two ships in oblique waves. Further study is recommended on the effect of transverse clearance and longitudinal relative positions and relative size of the two ships, including mooring and fender forces and speeds of advance of two ships in parallel.
