2014 : On Modelling the Hydrodynamic Behaviour

Prof. Ir. Eko Budi Djatmiko M.Sc Ph.D


This paper sets out to explore the scaling problems which should be anticipated when modelling the hydrodynamic behaviour of SWATH vessels. The information which will be gathered from the tests on the 2 SWATHs in Scotland is related to that which has been collected in model experiments in towing tanks and from computational analyses using a wide range of hydrodynamic analysis tools including frequency and time domain methods.
