Summary
This report aims to be a guide and help for those people who want to study the theoretical
backgrounds and the algorithms of a ship motions computer code based on the strip theory.
The underlying report describes in detail the theoretical backgrounds and algorithms used by
the first author during the development of his six-degrees-of-freedom ship motions computer
code, called SEAWAY.
The six ship motions of and about the centre of gravity G of the vessel have been defined in
the next figure.
Definition of ship motions
According to Newtons second law, the equations of motion for six degrees of freedom of an
oscillating ship in waves in a earth-bounded axes system have to be written as follows:
{ } i x M
j
i ij
direction in moments or forces all of sum

## & & for: 6 ,... 1 i

Because a linear system has been considered here, the forces and moments in the right hand
side of these equations consist of a superposition of:
so-called hydromechanic forces and moments, caused by a harmonic oscillation of the
rigid body in the undisturbed surface of a fluid being previously at rest, and
so-called exciting wave forces and moments on the restrained body, caused by the
incoming harmonic waves.
With this, the system of a with six degrees of freedom moving ship in waves can considered to
be a linear mass-damper-spring system with frequency-dependent coefficients and linear
exciting forces and moments:

In here,
i
x with indices 3 , 2 , 1 i are the displacements of G (surge, sway and heave) and
i
x
with indices 6 , 5 , 4 i are the rotations about the axes through G (roll, pitch and yaw). The
indices ij present at motion i the coupling with motion j .
The masses in the equations of motion above consist of solid masses or solid mass moments
of inertia of the ship (
ij
M ) and added masses or added mass moments of inertia caused
by the disturbed water, the hydrodynamic masses or mass moments of inertia (
ij
a ). An
oscillating ship generates waves it self too; energy will be radiated from the ship. The
hydrodynamic damping-terms (
i ij
x b & ) account for this. For the heave, roll and pitch motions,
hydrostatic spring-terms (
i ij
x c ) have to be added. The right hand sides of the equations of
motion consist of exciting wave forces and moments (
i
F ).
In the so-called strip theory, the ship will be divided in 20 tot 30 cross sections, of which the
two-dimensional hydromechanic coefficients and exciting wave loads will be calculated. To
obtain the three-dimensional values, these values will be integrated over the ship length
numerically. Finally, the differential equations will be solved to obtain the motions. These
calculations will be performed in the frequency domain.
It was in 1949 that Ursell published his potential theory for determining the hydrodynamic
coefficients of semicircular cross sections, oscillating in deep water in the frequency domain.
Using this, for the first time a rough estimation could be made of the motions of a ship in
regular waves at zero forward speed.
Shortly after that Tasai, Grim, Gerritsma and many other scientists used various already
existing conformal mapping techniques (to transform ship-like cross sections to a semicircle)
together with Ursells theory, in such a way that the motions in regular waves of more realistic
hull forms could be calculated too. Most popular was the 2-parameter Lewis conformal
mapping technique. The exciting wave loads were found from the loads in undisturbed waves
the so-called Froude-Krilov forces or moments completed with diffraction terms
accounting for the presence of the ship in these waves.
Borrowed from the broadcasting technology, Denis en Pierson published in 1953 a
superposition method to describe the irregular waves too. The sea was considered to be the
sum of many simple harmonic waves; each wave with its own frequency, amplitude, direction
and random phase lag. By calculating the responses of the ship on each of these individual
harmonic waves and adding up the responses of the ship, the energy distribution of the ships
behaviour in irregular waves could be found. These irregular motions are characterised by
significant amplitude and average period.
However, these theories provided the motions at zero forward speed only. In 1957, Korvin-
Kroukovski en Jacobs published a method - which was further improved in the sixties - to
account for the effect of forward ship speed.
So at the end of the fifties, all components for an elementary ship motions computer program
for deep water were already available.
Fukuda published in 1962 a calculation technique for the internal sheer forces and bending
moments in a cross section of a ship.
Frank published in 1967 his pulsating source theory to calculate the hydrodynamic
coefficients of a cross section of a ship in deep water directly, without using conformal
mapping. The potential coefficients of a fully submerged cross section (bulbous bow) and

sections with a very low area coefficient (often present in the aft body) could be calculated
now too.
Using Lewis conformal mapping, Keil published in 1974 his theory for obtaining the potential
coefficients in very shallow water.
Useful theories to calculate the added resistance of a ship due to waves were given by Boese
(integrated pressure method) in 1970 and Gerritsma and Beukelman (radiated energy method)
in 1972.
So far, all hydrodynamic coefficients had been determined with the potential theory. However,
roll requires a viscous correction on that. Ikeda, Himeno and Tanaka published in 1978 a very
useful semi-empirical method for determining the viscous roll damping components.
The introduction of personal computers in the early eighties increased the accessibility for
carrying out ship motion calculations considerably; even non-specialists could become users
too. From then on the computer capacity and the computing speed increased very fast, so that
three-dimensional theories could be developed much easier and cheaper now.
Because of the complex problem of forward speed in 3-D theories however, the 2-D approach
(strip theory) is still very favourable for calculating the behaviour of a ship at forward speed.
discussed very clearly by Faltinsen and Svensen in 1990.
Among others as a consequence of the work of the researchers mentioned above, a DOS
personal computer strip theory program - called SEAWAY - had been completed by the Delft
University of Technology at the end of the eighties. Recently, a Windows version has been
completed too, see web site www.shipmotions.nl or www.amarcon.com.
Based on the linear strip theory, this program calculates for 6 degrees of freedom in the
resistance and internal loads of displacement ships, barges and yachts in regular and irregular
waves. When ignoring interaction effects between the two individual hulls, the behaviour of
catamarans and semi-submersibles can be calculated too. The program is suitable for deep
water as well as for very shallow water. Viscous roll damping, bilge keels, free-surface anti-
roll tanks, external moments and (linear) mooring springs can be added.
The computer code has been verified and validated extensively by the authors, many students
and a large number of industrial users.

1 Introduction
SEAWAY is a frequency-domain ship motions PC program, based on the linear strip theory
internal loads for six degrees of freedom of displacement ships and yachts, barges, semi-
submersibles or catamarans, sailing in regular and irregular waves. The program is suitable for
deep water as well as for shallow water. Viscous roll damping, bilge keels, anti-roll tanks, free
surface effects and (linear springs) can be added.
This computer code has been developed in the late eighties and early nineties under DOS by
the first author. His last SEAWAY for DOS version was released in 2002.
In 2003, the second author took over the software implementation and distribution part of the
job and developed the new SEAWAY for Windows release.
Information can be found at web site www.shipmotions.nl or www.amarcon.com.
Johan Journe had obtained his Polytechnical Degree in 1964 at the Avond-HTS Rotterdam
and in 1975 his MSc degree at the Delft University of Technology. Both degrees in Naval
Architecture were obtained, alongside a full-time job, by studying in the evening hours.
He started his working career in 1958 at the Rotterdam Dockyard Company, first with
construction work in the shipbuilding factory and two years later with technical ship design
work in the drawing office of this yard. In 1963, he became Technical Officer at the Ship
Hydromechanics Laboratory of the Delft University of Technology. After obtaining his MSc
degree in 1975, he became Scientific Officer there, some years later Assistant Professor and in
1992 Associate Professor.
During the years 1985 through 1990, Johan had developed - as a more or less derailed hobby -
this 2-D ship motions computer code SEAWAY. This development was a very useful exercise
for him to understand in a very detailed way the theory and the practice of the behaviour of a
ship in waves, see Journe [1992]. Parts of this study were basis for comprehensive lecture
notes on Offshore Hydromechanics, see Journe and Massie [2001].
Since 1984, Johan Journe is teaching Ship and Offshore Hydromechanics to students of the
Mechanical and Civil Engineering Departments and since 1990 also to students of the
Maritime Technology Department.
Leon Adegeest was one of the founders of AMARCON in January 2001. AMARCONs major
activities are developing software for decision support onboard using seakeeping theory and
related consultancy and engineering work.
Before AMARCON, Leon has worked at Det Norske Veritas (DNV) in Norway and at
MARIN in the Netherlands. At DNV (1997 2001) he developed methods for the prediction
of extreme non-linear ship responses in irregular seas. As Group Leader Hydrodynamics, he
was heavily involved in the development and implementation of DNV's non-linear 3-D
seakeeping software package WASIM. Practical experience in the use of seakeeping codes
was gained during commercial projects, which include non-linear wave load analyses for large
container carriers, fatigue analyses for a RoRo-carrier and water on deck evaluations for
production vessels. From 1994 to 1997, he worked at the Maritime Research Institute
Netherlands (MARIN) as project manager in the Trials and Monitoring group.
Leon Adegeest holds a MSc degree in Naval Architecture from the Delft University of
Technology. In 1994, he finished his PhD study at this university. The title of the thesis was

This manual aim at being a guide and aid for those who want to study the theoretical
backgrounds and the algorithms of a ship motions computer code, like SEAWAY, based on the
strip theory. The theoretical backgrounds and the algorithms of this program have been
described here in detail.
Chapter 1, this introduction, gives a short survey of the contents of all chapters in this report.
Chapter 2 gives a general description of the various strip theory approaches. A general
description of the potential flow theory is given. The derivations of the hydromechanic forces
and moments, the wave potential and the wave and diffraction forces and moments have been
described.
The equations of motion are given with solid mass and inertia terms and hydromechanic
forces and moments in the left hand side and the wave exciting forces and moments in the
right hand side. The principal assumptions are a linear relation between forces and motions
and the validity of obtaining the total forces by a simple integration over the ship length of the
two-dimensional cross sectional forces.
This includes for all motions a forward speed effect caused by the potential mass, as has been
defined by Korvin-Kroukovsky and Jacobs [1957] for the heave and pitch motions. This
approach is called the ''Ordinary Strip Theory Method''. Also an inclusion of the forward
speed effect caused by the potential damping, as for instance given by Tasai [1969]. This
approach is called the ''Modified Strip Theory Method''.
The inclusion of so-called ''End-Terms'' has been described too.
Chapter 3 describes the determination of the two-dimensional potential mass and damping
coefficients for the six modes of motions at infinite and finite water depths.
Firstly, it describes several conformal mapping methods. For the determination of the two-
dimensional hydrodynamic potential coefficients for sway, heave and roll motions of ship-like
cross sections, these sections are conformal mapped to the unit circle. The advantage of
conformal mapping is that the velocity potential of the fluid around an arbitrary shape of a
cross section in a complex plane can be derived from the more convenient circular section in
another complex plane. In this manner hydrodynamic problems can be solved directly with
the coefficients of the mapping function.
The close-fit multi-parameter conformal mapping method is given. A very simple and straight
on iterative least squares method, used to determine the conformal mapping coefficients, has
been described. Two special cases of multi-parameter conformal mapping have been
described too: the well known classic transformation of Lewis [1929] with two parameters
and an Extended-Lewis transformation with three parameters, as given by Athanassoulis and
Loukakis [1985].
Then, it describes 3 methods for the determination of the two-dimensional potential mass and
damping coefficients for the six modes of motions at infinite and finite water depths. At
infinite water depths, the principle of the calculation of these potential coefficients is based on
work of Ursell [1949] for circular cylinders and Frank [1967] for any arbitrary symmetric
cross section.
Starting from the velocity potentials and the conjugate stream functions of the fluid with an
infinite depth as have been given by Tasai [1959], Tasai [1960], Tasai [1961] and de Jong
[1973] and using the multi-parameter conformal mapping technique, the calculation routines

of the two-dimensional hydrodynamic potential coefficients of ship-like cross sections are
given for the sway, heave and roll motions.
For any arbitrary water depth (deep to very shallow water), the method of Keil [1974] - based
on a variation of the theory of Ursell [1949] with Lewis conformal mapping - has been given.
Finally, the pulsating source method of Frank [1967] for deep water has been described.
Because of using the strip theory approach here, the pitch and yaw coefficients follow from
the moments about the ship's centre of gravity of the heave and sway coefficients,
respectively.
Approximations are given for the surge coefficients.
Chapter 4 gives some corrections on the hydrodynamic damping due to viscous effects. The
surge-damping coefficient is corrected for viscous effects by an empirical method, based on a
The analysis of free-rolling model experiments and two (semi) empirical methods published
by Miller [1974] and Ikeda [1978], to determine a viscous correction of the roll-damping
coefficients, are described in detail.
Chapter 5 describes the determination of the hydromechanic forces and moments in the left-
hand side of the six equations of motion of a sailing ship, obtained with the hydromechanic
coefficients as determined in Chapter 3 and 4, for both the ordinary and the modified strip
theory method.
Chapter 6 describes the wave exciting forces and moments in the right hand side of the six
equations of motion of a sailing ship in water with an arbitrarily depth, using the relative
motion concept for both the ordinary and the modified strip theory method.
First, the classical approach has been described, using equivalent accelerations and velocities
of the water particles. Then, an alternative approach, based on diffraction of waves, has been
described.
Chapter 7 describes the solution of the equations of motion and the determination of the
frequency characteristics of the absolute displacements, rotations, velocities and accelerations
and the vertical relative displacements. The use of a wave potential valid for any arbitrary
water depth makes a calculation method with deep water coefficients, suitable for ships
sailing with keel clearances down to about 50 percent of the ship's draft. At lower water
depths, Keils method should be used.
Chapter 8 describes some anti-rolling devices. A description is given of an inclusion of
passive free-surface tanks as defined by the experiments of van den Bosch and Vugts [1966]
and by the theory of Verhagen and van Wijngaarden [1965]. Active fin and rudder stabilisers
have been described too.
Chapter 9 describes the inclusion of linear spring terms, to simulate the behavior of anchored
or moored ships.
Chapter 10 describes two methods to determine the transfer functions of the added resistance
and Beukelman [1972]. The second method is an integrated pressure method, as published by
Boese [1970].

Chapter 11 describes the determination of the frequency characteristics of the lateral and
vertical shear forces and bending moments and the torsion moments in a way as had been
presented by Fukuda [1962] for the vertical mode. Still water phenomena are described too.
Chapter 12 describes the statistics in irregular waves, by using the superposition principle.
Three examples of normalized wave spectra are given: the somewhat wide wave spectrum of
Neumann, an average wave spectrum of Bretschneider and the more narrow Mean JONSWAP
wave spectrum.
A description is given of the calculation procedure of the energy spectra and the statistics of
the ship motions for six degrees of freedom, the added resistance, the vertical relative motions
and the mechanic loads on the ship in waves coming from any direction.
For the calculation of the probability of exceeding a threshold value by the motions, the
Rayleigh probability density function has been used.
The static and dynamic swell- up of the waves, of importance when calculating the probability
of shipping green water, are defined according to Tasaki [1963]. A theoretically determined
dynamic swell- up had been given too.
Bow slamming phenomena are defined by both the relative bow velocity criterion of Ochi
[1964] and by the peak bottom-impact-pressure criteria of Conolly [1974].
Chapter 13 describes the additions to all algorithms in case of twin- hull ships, such as semi-
submersibles and catamarans. However, for interaction effects between the two individual
hulls will not be accounted here.
Chapter 14 shows some typical numerical recipes, as has been used in program SEAWAY.
Finally, Chapter 15 gives a survey of all literature used during the development of this
computer code.

2 Strip Theory Methods
The ship is considered to be a rigid body, floating in the surface of an ideal fluid, which is
homogeneous, incompressible, free of surface tension, irrotational and without viscosity. It is
assumed that the problem of the motions of this floating body in waves is linear or can be
linearised. Consequently, only the external loads on the underwater part of the ship are
considered here and the effect of the above water part will be fully neglected.
Faltinsen and Svensen [1990] have discussed the incorporation of seakeeping theories in ship
design clearly. An overview of seakeeping theories for ships were presented and it was
concluded that - nevertheless some limitations - strip theories are the most successful and
practical tools for the calculation of the wave induced motions of the ship, at least in an early
design stage of a ship.
The strip theory solves the three-dimensional problem of the hydromechanical and exciting
wave forces and moments on the ship by integrating the two-dimensional potential solutions
over the ship's length. Interactions between the cross sections are ignored for the zero-speed
case. So, each cross section of the ship is considered to be part of an infinitely long cylinder.
The strip theory is a slender body theory, so one should expect less accurate predictions for
ships with low length to breadth ratios. However, experiments showed that the strip theory
appears to be remarkably effective for predicting the motions of ships with length to breadth
ratios down to about 3.0, or even sometimes lower.
The strip theory is based on the potential flow theory. This holds that viscous effects are
neglected, which can deliver serious problems when predicting roll motions at resonance
frequencies. In practice, for viscous roll damping effects can be accounted fairly by empirical
methods.
Because of the way that the forced motion problems are solved, generally in the strip theory,
substantial disagreements can be found between the calculated results and the experimental
data of the wave loads at low frequencies of encounter in following waves. In practice
however, these ''near zero frequency of encounter problems'' can be solved by forcing the
wave loads going to zero, artificially.
For high-speed vessels and for large ship motions, as appear in extreme sea states, the strip
theory can deliver less accurate results. Then the so-called ''end-terms'' can become very
important.
The strip theory accounts for the interaction with the forward speed in a very simple way. The
effect of the steady wave system around the ship is neglected and the free surface conditions
are simplified, so that the unsteady waves generated by the ship are propagating in directions
perpendicular to the centre plane of the ship. In reality the wave systems around the ship are
far more complex. For high-speed vessels, unsteady divergent wave systems become
important. This effect is neglected in the strip theory.
The strip theory is based on linearity. This means that the ship motions are supposed to be
small, relative to the cross sectional dimensions of the ship. Only hydrodynamic effects of the
hull below the still water level are accounted for. So, when parts of the ship go out of or in to
the water or when green water is shipped, inaccuracies can be expected. Also, the strip theory
does not distinguish between alternative above water hull forms.
Because of the added resistance of a ship due to the waves is proportional to the relative
motions squared, its inaccuracy will be gained strongly by inaccuracies in the predicted
motions.

Nevertheless these limitations, seakeeping prediction methods based upon the strip theory
provide a sufficiently good basis for optimisation studies at an early design stage of the ship.
At a more detailed design stage, it can be considered to carry out additional model
experiments to investigate for instance added resistance or extreme event phenomena, such as
shipping green water and slamming.

2.1 Definitions
Figure 2.11 shows a harmonic wave as seen from two different perspectives. Figure 2.11-a
shows what one would observe in a snapshot photo made looking at the side of a (transparent)
wave flume; the wave profile is shown as a function of distance x along the flume at a fixed
instant in time. Figure 2.11-b shows a time record of the water level observed at one location
along the flume; it looks similar in many ways to the other figure, but time t has replaced x
on the horizontal axis.
Figure 2.11: Harmonic wave definitions
Notice that the origin of the co-ordinate system is at the still water level with the positive z -
axis directed upwards; most relevant values of z will be negative.
The still water level is the average water level or the level of the water if no waves were
present. The x -axis is positive in the direction of wave propagation. The water depth, h , (a
positive value) is measured between the seabed ( h z ) and the still water level ( 0 z ).
The highest point of the wave is called its crest and the lowest point on its surface is the
trough. If the wave is described by a harmonic wave, then its amplitude
a
is the distance
from the still water level to the crest, or to the trough for that matter. The subscript a denotes
the amplitude, here.
The horizontal distance (measured in the direction of wave propagation) between any two
successive wave crests is the wavelength, . The distance along the time axis is the wave
period, T . The ratio of wave height to wavelength is often referred to as the dimensionless
wave steepness: / 2
a
.
Since the distance between any two corresponding points on successive harmonic waves is the
same, wave lengths and periods are usually actually measured between two consecutive
upward (or downward) crossings of the still water level. Such points are also called zero-
crossings, and are easier to detect in a wave record.
Since sine or cosine waves are expressed in terms of angular arguments, the wavelength and
wave period are converted to angles using:

or

Equation 2.11
in which k is the wave number (rad/m) and is the circular wave frequency (rad/s).

Obviously, the wave form moves one wave length during one period, so that its speed or
phase velocity, c , is given by:
k T

Another right-handed co-ordinate system ( ) z y x O , , is moving forward with a constant ship
speed V . The directions of the axes are: x in the direction of the forward ship speed V , y in
the lateral port side direction and z vertically upwards. The ship is supposed to carry out
oscillations around this moving ( ) z y x O , , co-ordinate system. The origin O lies vertically
above or under the time-averaged position of the centre of gravity G. The ( ) y x, -plane lies in
the still water surface.
A third right-handed co-ordinate system ( )

2.2 Incident Wave Potential
In order to use the linear potential theory for waves, it will be necessary to assume that the
water surface slope is very small. This means that the wave steepness is so small that terms in
the equations of motion of the waves with a magnitude in the order of the steepness-squared
can be ignored.
Suppose a wave moving in the ( ) z x, -plane. The profile of that simple wave with a small
steepness looks like a sine or a cosine and the motion of a water particle in a wave depends on
the distance below the still water level. This is reason why the wave potential can be written
as:
( ) ( ) ( ) t x k z P t z x
w
sin , ,
Equation 2.21
in which ( ) z P is an (as yet) unknown function of z .
This velocity potential ( ) t z x
w
, , of the harmonic waves has to fulfil four requirements:
Continuity condition or Laplace equation
Seabed boundary condition
Free surface dynamic boundary condition
Free surface kinematic boundary condition
These requirements lead to a more complete expression for the velocity potential as will be
explained in the following subsections.
The relationships presented in these subsections are valid for all water depths, but the fact that
they contain so many hyperbolic functions makes them cumbersome to use. Engineers - as
opposed to (some) scientists - often look for ways to simplify the theory. The simplifications
stem from the following approximations for large and very small arguments, s , as shown in
Figure 2.21:

2.2.4 Free Surface Dynamic Boundary Condition

0
p . This requirement for the pressure is called the dynamic boundary condition at the free
surface.
The Bernoulli equation for an instationary irrotational flow (with the velocity given in terms
of its three components) is in its general form:

2.2.5 Free Surface Kinematic Boundary Condition
So far the relation between the wave period T and the wavelength, , is still unknown. This
relation between T and (or equivalently and k ) follows from the boundary condition
that the vertical velocity of a water particle in the free surface of the fluid is identical to the
vertical velocity of that free surface itself (no-leak condition); this is a kinematic boundary
condition.

2.3 Floating Rigid Body in Waves
Consider a rigid body, floating in an ideal fluid with harmonic waves. The water depth is
assumed to be finite. The time-averaged speed of the body is zero in all directions. For the
sake of simple notation, it is assumed here that the ( ) z y x O , , system is identical to the
( )
0 0 0

and the z -axis and
0
z -axis are positive upwards.
The linear fluid velocity potential can be split into three parts:

particles, thus the derivative x , at any time on both sides of the body must have the same
direction; these motions are anti-symmetric. For heave oscillations these velocities must be of
opposite sign; this is a symmetric motion. However, for all three modes of oscillations the
vertical velocities, thus the derivative y , on both sides must have the same directions at
any time.
2.3.2 Forces and Moments

oscillating body in still water; waves are radiated from the body. The radiation potential,

X in the direction k is caused by a forced harmonic
oscillation of the body in the direction j . This is generally true for all j and k in the range
from 1 to 6. When k j , the force or moment is caused by a motion in that same direction.
When k j , the force in one direction results from the motion in another direction. This
introduces what is called coupling between the forces and moments (or motions).
Equation 2.323 expresses the force and moment components,
rkj
X , in terms of still unknown
potentials,
j
. But not everything is solved yet, a solution for this will be found later in this
Chapter.

2.3.3.2 Green's Second Theorem
Green's second theorem transforms a large volume-integral into a much easier to handle
surface-integral. Its mathematical background is beyond the scope of this text. It is valid for
any potential function, regardless the fact if it fulfils the Laplace condition or not.
Consider two separate velocity potentials
j
and
k
. Green's second theorem, applied to
these potentials, is then:

Equation 2.329
As said before, this theorem is generally valid for all kinds of potentials; it is not necessary
that they fulfil the Laplace equation. In Green's theorem,
*
S is a closed surface with a volume
*
V . This volume is bounded by the wall of an imaginary vertical circular cylinder with a very
large radius R , the seabed at h z , the water surface at z and the wetted surface of the
floating body, S ; see Figure 2.31.

Both of the above radiation potentials
j
and
k
must fulfil 0

equation. So the left-hand side of Equation 2.329 becomes zero which yields for the right-

Equation 2.337
For clarity, the symmetry of terms about the diagonal in these matrices (for example that
31 13
M M for zero forward speed) has not been included here. The terms on the diagonals
(
nn
M ) are the primary coefficients relating properties such as hydrodynamic mass in one
direction to the inertia forces in that same direction. Off-diagonal terms (such as
13
M )
represent hydrodynamic mass only, which is associated with an inertia dependent force in one
direction caused by a motion component in another.
Forward speed has an effect on the velocity potentials itself, but is not discussed in this
Section. This effect is quite completely explained by Timman and Newman [1962].

.
These relations, found by Haskind [1957], are very important; they underlie the relative
motion (displacement - velocity - acceleration) hypothesis, as used in strip theory. These
relations are valid only for a floating body with a zero time-averaged speed in all directions.
Newman [1962] however, has generalised the Haskind relations for a body with a constant
forward speed. He derived equations, which differ only slightly from those found by Haskind.
According to Newman's approach the wave potential has to be defined in the moving
( ) z y x O , , system. The radiation potential has to be determined for the constant forward speed

2.4 Equations of Motion
The equations of motion are given here in a - with the ship speed V steadily moving - right-
handed co-ordinate system ( ) z y x G , , , with the origin in the average position of the ships
centre of gravity G.
The total mass as well as its distribution over the body is considered to be constant with time.
For ships and other floating structures, this assumption is normally valid during a time that is
large relative to the period of the motions. This holds that small effects - such as for instance a
decreasing mass due to fuel consumption - can be ignored.
The solid mass matrix of a floating structure is given below.

Equation 2.44
in which KG is the height of the centre of gravity, G, above the keel.
For many ships without cargo on board (ballast condition), the mass is concentrated at the
ends (engine room aft and ballast water forward to avoid a large trim), while for ships with
cargo on board (full load condition) the - more or less amidships laden - cargo plays an
Theoretical Manual of SEAWAY for Windows TUD Report No. 1370
J.M.J. Journe and L.J.M. Adegeest Revision: 14-12-2003
40
important role. Thus for normal ships, the radii of inertia,
yy
k and
zz
k , are usually smaller in
the full load condition than in the ballast condition.
Notice here that the longitudinal radius of gyration of a long homogeneous rectangular beam
with a length L is equal to about L 12 1 or L 289 . 0 .
The equations of motions of a rigid body in a space fixed co-ordinate system follow from
Newton's second law. The vector equations for the translations of and the rotations about the
centre of gravity are given respectively by:
( ) U m
dt
d
F and ( ) H
dt

M
Equation 2.45
in which:
F resulting external force acting in the centre of gravity
m mass of the rigid body
U instantaneous velocity of the centre of gravity
M resulting external moment acting about the centre of gravity
H instantaneous angular momentum about the centre of gravity
t time
Two important assumptions are made for the loads in the right-hand side of these equations:
a) The so-called hydromechanic forces and moments are induced by the harmonic
oscillations of the rigid body, moving in the undisturbed surface of the fluid.
b) The so-called wave exciting forces and moments are produced by waves coming in on the
restrained body.
Since the system is linear, these loads are added up for obtaining the total loads. Thus, after
assuming small motions, symmetry of the body and that the x -, y - and z -axes are principal
axes, one can write the following six equations of motion for the ship:

Generally, a ship has a vertical-longitudinal plane of symmetry, so that its motions can be split
into symmetric and anti-symmetric components. Surge, heave and pitch motions are
symmetric motions, that is to say that a point to starboard has the same motion as the mirrored
point to port side. It is obvious that the remaining motions sway, roll and yaw are anti-
symmetric motions. Symmetric and anti-symmetric motions of a free-floating structure are not
coupled; they don't have any effect on each other. For instance, a vertical force acting at the
centre of gravity can cause surge, heave and pitch motions, but will not result in sway, roll or
yaw motions.
Because of this symmetry and anti-symmetry, two sets of three coupled equations of motion
can be distinguished for ships:
motions symmetric - anti

Note that this distinction between symmetric and anti-symmetric motions disappears when the

anchor lines.

loads, these equations can be solved with a numerical method.

2.5 Strip Theory Approaches
Strip theory is a computational method by which the forces on and motions of a three-
dimensional floating body can be determined using results from two-dimensional potential
theory. Strip theory considers a ship to be made up of a finite number of transverse two-
dimensional slices, which are rigidly connected to each other. Each of these slices will have a
form that closely resembles the segment of the ship that it represents. Each slice is treated
hydrodynamically as if it is a segment of an infinitely long floating cylinder; see Figure 2.51.
Figure 2.51: Strip theory representation by cross sections
This means that all waves which are produced by the oscillating ship (hydromechanic loads)
and the diffracted waves (wave loads) are assumed to travel perpendicular to the middle line
plane - thus parallel to the ( ) z y, -plane - of the ship. This holds too that the strip theory
supposes that the fore and aft side of the body (such as a pontoon) does not produce waves in
the x -direction. For the zero forward speed case, interactions between the cross sections are
ignored as well.
Fundamentally, strip theory is valid for long and slender bodies only. In spite of this
restriction, experiments have shown that strip theory can be applied successfully for floating
bodies with a length to breadth ratio larger than three, 3 B L , at least from a practical point
of view.

The appearance of two-dimensional surge forces seems strange here. It is strange! A more or
less empirical method has been used in SEAWAY for the surge motion, by defining an
equivalent longitudinal cross section that is swaying. Then, the 2-D hydrodynamic sway
coefficients of this equivalent cross section are translated to 2-D hydrodynamic surge
coefficients by an empirical method based on theoretical results from three-dimensional
calculations and these coefficients are used to determine 2-D loads. In this way, all sets of six
surge loads can be treated in the same numerical way in SEAWAY for the determination of the
3-D loads. Inaccuracies of the hydromechanic coefficients for surge of (slender) ships are of
minor importance, because these coefficients are relatively small.
Notice how in the strip theory the pitch and yaw moments are derived from the 2-D heave and
sway forces, respectively, while the roll moments are obtained directly.
The equations of motions are defined in the moving axis system with the origin at the time-
averaged position of the centre of gravity, G. All two-dimensional potential coefficients have
been defined here in an axis system with the origin, O, in the water plane; the hydromechanic
and exciting wave moments have to be corrected for the distance OG.

In waves the motions of the water particles are depending on its local vertical distance to the
mean or still water surface. At each cross section of the ship an average (or equivalent)
constant value has to be found.
Relative to a restrained ship, moving forward with speed V in waves, the equivalent j
constant components of water particle displacements (

Equation 2.54
The effect of the operator in Equation 2.53 can be understood easily when one realises that in
that earth-bound co-ordinate system the sailing ship penetrates through a ''virtual vertical
disk''. For instance, when a ship sails with speed V and constant trim angle through still
water, the relative vertical velocity of a water particle with respect to the bottom of the sailing
ship becomes V V sin .
Two different types of strip theory methods (as has been used in SEAWAY) are discussed
here:
1. Ordinary Strip Theory Method
According to this classic method, the uncoupled two-dimensional potential
hydromechanic loads and wave loads in an arbitrary direction j are defined by:

This is the first formulation of the strip theory that can be found in the literature. It
contains a more or less intuitive approach to the forward speed problem, as published in
detail by Korvin-Kroukovski and Jacobs [1957].
2. Modified Strip Theory Method
According to this modified method, these loads become:

cross sectional area of the hull.
Equivalent directional components of the orbital acceleration and velocity - derived from
these Froude-Krilov loads - are used here to calculate the diffraction parts of the total wave
forces and moments.
From a theoretical point of view, one should prefer the use of the modified strip theory
method. However, it appeared from the authors experiences that for ships with moderate
forward speed ( 30 . 0 Fn ) the ordinary method could provide in some cases a better fit with
experimental data.

2.6 Hydrodynamic Coefficients
In strip theory, the two-dimensional hydrodynamic sway, heave and roll coefficients can be
calculated by several methods:
1. Methods based on Ursell's Theory and Conformal Mapping
Ursell [1949] derived an analytical solution for solving the problem of calculating the
hydrodynamic coefficients of an oscillating circular cylinder in the surface of a fluid:
a) Deep Water Coefficients with Lewis Conformal Mapping
Tasai [1959], Tasai [1961] and many others added the so-called Lewis transformation -
which is a very simple and in a lot of cases also more or less realistic method to
transform ship-like cross sections to this unit circle - to Ursell's solution. This
transformation will be carried out using a scale factor and two mapping coefficients.
Only the breadth, the draft and the area of the mapped cross section will be similar to
that of the actual cross section.
b) Deep Water Coefficients with Close-Fit Conformal Mapping
A more accurate way of mapping has been added by Tasai [1960] and others too, by
using more than only two mapping coefficients. The accuracy obtained depends on the
number of mapping coefficients. Generally, a maximum number of 10 coefficients are
used for defining the cross section. These coefficients are determined in such a way
that the Root Mean Square of the differences between the offsets of the mapped and
the actual cross section is minimal.
c) Shallow Water Coefficients with Lewis Conformal Mapping
For shallow water, the theory of Keil [1974] - based on an expansion of Ursell's
potential theory for circular cylinders at deep water to shallow water - and Lewis
conformal mapping can be used.
2. Frank's Pulsating Source Theory for Deep Water
Mapping methods require an intersection of the cross section with the water plane and, as
a consequence of this, they are not suitable for submerged cross sections, like at a bulbous
bow. Also, conformal mapping can fail for cross sections with very low sectional area
coefficients, such as are sometimes present in the aft body of a ship.
Frank [1967] considered a cylinder of constant cross sections with an arbitrarily
symmetrical shape, of which the cross sections are simply a region of connected line
elements. This vertical cross section can be fully or partly immersed in a previously
undisturbed fluid of infinite depth. He developed an integral equation method utilising the
Green's function, which represents a complex potential of a pulsating point source of unit
strength at the midpoint of each line element. Wave systems were defined in such a way
that all required boundary conditions were fulfilled. The linearised Bernoulli equation
provides the pressures after which the potential coefficients were obtained from the in-
phase and out-of-phase components of the resultant hydrodynamic loads.
The 2-D potential pitch and yaw (moment) coefficients follow from the previous heave and
sway coefficients and the lever, i.e., the distance of the cross section to the centre of gravity
G.

A more or less empirical procedure has followed by the author for the surge motion. An
equivalent longitudinal cross section has been defined. For each frequency, the two-
dimensional potential hydrodynamic sway coefficient of this equivalent cross section is
translated to two-dimensional potential hydrodynamic surge coefficients, by an empirical
method based on theoretical results of three-dimensional calculations.
The 3-D coefficients follow from an integration of these 2-D coefficients over the ship's
length. Viscous terms have been be added for surge and roll.

3 2-D Potential Coefficients
This Chapter described the various methods, used in the SEAWAY computer code, to obtain
the 2-D potential coefficients:
the theory of Tasai for deep water, based on Ursell's potential theory for circular cylinders
and Lewis and N-parameter conformal mapping
the theory of Keil for very shallow to deep water, based on a variation of Ursell's potential
theory for circular cylinders and Lewis conformal mapping
the theory of Frank for deep water, using pulsating sources on the cross sectional contour.
During the ship motions calculations different co-ordinate systems, as shown before, will be
used. The two-dimensional hydrodynamic potential coefficients have been defined here with
respect to the ( ) z y x O , , co-ordinate system for the moving ship in still water.
However, in this section deviating axes systems are used for the determination of the two-
dimensional hydrodynamic potential coefficients for sway, heave and roll motions. This holds
for the sway and roll coupling coefficients a change of sign. The signs of the uncoupled sway,
heave and roll coefficients do not change.
For each cross section, the following two-dimensional hydrodynamic coefficients have to be
obtained:

3.1 Conformal Mapping Methods
Ursell's derivation of potential coefficients is valid for semicircular cross sections only. For
the determination of the two-dimensional added mass and damping in the sway, heave and roll
mode of the motions of ship-like cross sections by Ursell's method, the cross sections have to
be mapped conformally to the unit semicircle. The advantage of conformal mapping is that the
velocity potential of the fluid around an arbitrarily shape of a cross section in a complex plane
can be derived from the more convenient semicircular section in another complex plane. In
this manner hydrodynamic problems can be solved directly with the coefficients of the
mapping function.

known Lewis transformation, see reference Lewis [1929]. An extended and clear description
of the representation of ship hull forms by this Lewis two-parameter conformal mapping is

forms. So conventional forms, bulbous forms and tunneled forms are considered to be valid
forms here, see Figure 3.13. To obtain ship-like Lewis forms, the area coefficient
s
is
bounded by a lower limit to omit re-entrant Lewis forms and by an upper limit to omit non-
symmetric Lewis forms:

Equation 3.119
If a value of
s
is outside of this range it has to be set (from a practical point of view) to the
value of the nearest border of this range, to calculate the Lewis coefficients.
Numerical problems, for instance with bulbous or aft cross sections of a ship, are avoided
when the following requirements are fulfilled:

3.1.2 Extended Lewis Conformal Mapping
Somewhat better approximations will be obtained by taking into account also the first order
moments of half the cross section about the
0
x - and
0
y -axes. These two additions to the
Lewis formulation were proposed by Reed and Nowacki [1974] and have been simplified by
Athanassoulis and Loukakis [1985] by taking into account the vertical position of the centroid
of the cross section. Extending the Lewis transformation from 2 N to 3 N in the general
transformation formula has done this.
The three-parameter Extended-Lewis transformation is defined by:

3.1.3 Close-Fit Conformal Mapping
A more accurate transformation of the cross sectional hull form can be obtained by using a
greater number of parameters N . A very simple and straight on iterative least squares method
of the first author to determine the Close-Fit conformal mapping coefficients will be described
here shortly.
The scale factor
s
M and the conformal mapping coefficients
1 2 n
a , with a maximum value of
n varying from 2 N until 10 N , have been determined successfully from the offsets of
various cross sections in such that the sum of the squares of the deviations of the actual cross
section from the approximate described cross section is minimised.

Attention has been paid in SEAWAY to divergence in the calculation routines and re-entrant
forms. In these cases the number N will be decreased until the divergence or re-entrance
vanish. In the worse case the ''minimum'' value of N will be attained without success. One

can then switch to Lewis coefficients with an area coefficient of the cross section, eventually
set to the nearest border of the valid Lewis form area.
3.1.4 Mapping Comparisons
A first example has been given here for the amidships cross section of a container vessel, with
a breadth of 25.40 meter and a draught of 9.00 meter, with offsets as tabled below.
Table 3.1-1: Offsets of a cross section
For the least square method in the conformal mapping method, 33 new offsets at equidistant
length intervals on the contour of this cross section can be determined by a second degree
interpolation routine. The calculated data of the two-parameter Lewis and the N -parameter
Close-Fit conformal mapping of this amidships cross section are tabled below. The last line
lists the RMS -values for the deviations of the 33 equidistant points on the approximate
contour of this cross section.

Another example is given in Figure 3.15, which shows the differences between a Lewis
transformation and a 10-parameter close-fit conformal mapping of a rectangular cross section.

3.2 Potential Theory of Tasai
In this section, the determination of the hydrodynamic coefficients of a heaving, swaying and
rolling cross section of a ship in deep water at zero forward speed is based on work published
by Ursell [1949], Tasai [1959], Tasai [1960], Tasai [1961] and de Jong [1973]. Tasai's
notations have been maintained here as far as possible.
The axes system of Tasai (and used here) is given in Figure 3.21.
Figure 3.21: Tasais axes system for heave, sway and roll oscillations
The figure shows a cross section of an infinite long cylinder in the surface of a fluid. This
cylinder will carry out forced harmonic heave, sway and roll motions, respectively. Using the
approach of Tasai (and de Jong), the determination of the hydrodynamic loads will be showed
in the following Sections.

3.2.1 Heave Motions
The determination of the hydrodynamic coefficients of a heaving cross section of a ship in
deep and still water at zero forward speed, as described here, is based on work published by
Ursell [1949], Tasai [1959] and Tasai [1960]. Starting points for the derivation these
coefficients here are the velocity potentials and the conjugate stream functions of the fluid, as
they have been derived by Tasai and also by de Jong [1973].
Suppose an infinite long cylinder in the surface of a fluid, of which a cross section is given in
Figure 3.21. The cylinder is forced to carry out a simple harmonic vertical motion about its
initial position with a frequency of oscillation and small amplitude of displacement
a
y :
( ) + t y y

in which is a phase angle.
Respectively, the vertical velocity and acceleration of the cylinder are:
( ) + t y y
a
sin & and ( ) + t y y
a
cos
2
& &
Equation 3.22
This forced vertical oscillation of the cylinder causes a surface disturbance of the fluid.
Because the cylinder is supposed to be infinitely long, the generated waves will be two-
dimensional. These waves travel away from the cylinder and a stationary state is rapidly
attained.
Two kinds of waves will be produced:
A standing wave system, denoted here by subscript A.
The amplitudes of these waves decrease strongly with the distance to the cylinder.
A regular progressive wave system, denoted here by subscript B .
These waves dissipate energy. At a distance of a few wavelengths from the cylinder, the
waves on each side can be described by a single regular wave train. The wave amplitude at
infinity
a
is proportional to the amplitude of oscillation of the cylinder
a
y , provided that
this amplitude is sufficiently small compared with the radius of the cylinder and the
wavelength is not much smaller than the diameter of the cylinder.
The two-dimensional velocity potential of the fluid has to fulfil the following requirements:
1. The velocity potential must satisfy to the equation of Laplace:

2. Because the heave motion of the fluid is symmetrical about the (vertical) y -axis, this
velocity potential has the following relation:

Another requirement is a diverging wave train for goes to infinity. It is therefore necessary
to add a stream function, satisfying the free surface condition and the symmetry about the y -

3.2.2 Sway Motions
The determination of the hydrodynamic coefficients of a swaying cross section of a ship in
deep and still water at zero forward speed is based here on work published by Tasai [1961] for
the Lewis conformal mapping method. Starting points for the derivation these coefficients
here are the velocity potentials and the conjugate stream functions of the fluid as they have
been derived by Tasai [1961] and also by de Jong [1973].
Suppose an infinite long cylinder in the surface of a fluid, of which a cross section is given in
Figure 3.21. The cylinder is forced to carry out a simple harmonic lateral motion about its
initial position with a frequency of oscillation and small amplitude of displacement
a
x :
( ) + t x x
a
cos
Equation 3.242
in which is a phase angle.
Respectively, the lateral velocity and acceleration of the cylinder are:
( ) + t x x
a
sin & and ( ) + t x x
a
cos
2
& &
Equation 3.243
This forced lateral oscillation of the cylinder causes a surface disturbance of the fluid.
Because the cylinder is supposed to be infinitely long, the generated waves will be two-
dimensional. These waves travel away from the cylinder and a stationary state is rapidly
attained.
Two kinds of waves will be produced:
A standing wave system, denoted here by subscript A.
The amplitudes of these waves decrease strongly with the distance to the cylinder.
A regular progressive wave system, denoted here by subscript B .
These waves dissipate energy. At a distance of a few wavelengths from the cylinder, the
waves on each side can be described by a single regular wave train. The wave amplitude at
infinity
a
is proportional to the amplitude of oscillation of the cylinder
a
x , provided that
this amplitude is sufficiently small compared with the radius of the cylinder and the
wavelength is not much smaller than the diameter of the cylinder.
The two-dimensional velocity potential of the fluid has to fulfil the following requirements:
1. The velocity potential must satisfy to the equation of Laplace:
0

y x
Equation 3.244
2. Because the sway motion of the fluid is not symmetrical about the y -axis, this velocity
potential has the following anti-symmetric relation:
( ) ( ) y x y x , , +
Equation 3.245
3. The linearised free surface condition in deep water is expressed as follows:

Another requirement is a diverging wave train for goes to infinity. It is therefore necessary
to add a stream function, satisfying the equation of Laplace, the non-symmetrical motion and
the free surface condition, representing such a train of waves at infinity. For this, a function
describing a two-dimensional horizontal doublet at the origin O is chosen.

3.2.3 Roll Motions
The determination of the hydrodynamic coefficients of a rolling cross section of a ship in deep
and still water at zero forward speed, is based here on work published by Tasai [1961] for the
Lewis method. Starting points for the derivation these coefficients here are the velocity
potentials and the conjugate stream functions of the fluid as they have been derived by Tasai
and also by de Jong [1973].
Suppose an infinite long cylinder in the surface of a fluid, of which a cross section is given in
Figure 3.21. The cylinder is forced to carry out a simple harmonic roll motion about the
origin O with a frequency of oscillation and small amplitude of displacement
a
:
( ) + t
a

Equation 3.289
in which is a phase angle.
Respectively, the angular velocity and acceleration of the cylinder are:
( ) + t
a
sin
&
and ( ) + t
a
cos
2
& &
Equation 3.290
This forced angular oscillation of the cylinder causes a surface disturbance of the fluid.
Because the cylinder is supposed to be infinitely long, the generated waves will be two-
dimensional. These waves travel away from the cylinder and a stationary state is rapidly
attained.
Two kinds of waves will be produced:
A standing wave system, denoted here by subscript A.
The amplitudes of these waves decrease strongly with the distance to the cylinder.
A regular progressive wave system, denoted here by subscript B .
These waves dissipate energy. At a distance of a few wavelengths from the cylinder, the
waves on each side can be described by a single regular wave train. The wave amplitude at
infinity
a
is proportional to the amplitude of oscillation of the cylinder
a
, provided that
this amplitude is sufficiently small compared with the radius of the cylinder and the wave
length is not much smaller than the diameter of the cylinder.
The two-dimensional velocity potential of the fluid has to fulfil the following requirements:
1. The velocity potential must satisfy to the equation of Laplace:
0

2. Because the sway motion of the fluid is not symmetrical about the y -axis, this velocity
potential has the following anti-symmetric relation:
( ) ( ) y x y x , , +
Equation 3.292
3. The linearised free surface condition in deep water is expressed as follows:

Power series expansions, as given by Porter [1960], can be used instead of these last integrals
over k . Summations in these expansions converge much faster than the numeric integration
procedure. This has been showed for the sway case.

The series in these two sets of equations converges uniformly with an increasing value of m.
For practical reasons the maximum value of m is limited to M , for instance 10 M .
Each -value less than 2 will provide an equation for the

least squares method. Note that at least 1 + M values of , less than 2 , are required to
solve these equations.
Another favourable method is to multiply both sides of the equations with . Then the
summation over can be replaced by integration. Herewith, two sets of 1 + M equations
have been obtained, one set for

3.3 Potential Theory of Keil
In this section, the determination of the hydrodynamic coefficients of a heaving, swaying and
rolling cross section of a ship in shallow at zero forward speed is based on work published by
Keil [1974]. His method is based on Lewis conformal mapping of the ships' cross sections to
the unit circle and the shallow water potential theory.
Journe [2001] has given a few comparisons of predicted and measured data on vertical
motions at various water depths. Recently, Vantorre and Journe [2003] have given more
extended comparisons of computed results by Keils theory with model test data on vertical
motions of a slender and a full ship, sailing at very shallow water.
For a significant part, the detailed description of the shallow water potential theory in this
Section is simply a translation of Keils original 1974 German report into the English
language. However, it has been supplemented with some numerical improvements and
outcomes of discussions with the author in the early eighties. The theory has been presented
here in a layout, more or less as used in the computer code SEAWAY.

Equation 3.31
The fluid is supposed to be incompressible and inviscid. The flow caused by the oscillating
body in the surface of this fluid can be described by a potential flow. The problem will be
linearised, i.e., contributions of second and higher order in the definition of the boundary
conditions will be ignored. Physically, this yields an assumption of small amplitude motions.
The earth-bounded axes system of the sectional contour is given in Figure 3.32-a.

3.3.3.2 Potentials
Suppose a three-dimensional oscillating cylindrical body in previously still water. To find the
potential of the resulting fluid motions, an oscillating pressure p at the free surface will
replace this body. The unknown amplitude p of this pressure has to follow from the boundary
conditions.
This pressure is not supposed to act over the full breadth of the body; it is supposed to act -
over the full length L of the body - only over a small distance 2 y on both sides of 0 y ,
so:

Equation 3.330
In here,

r 0
is the potential at deep water and
is the additional potential due to the
finite water depth.
j
can be written in the same way.
3.3.3.2.3 Alternative Derivation
Assuming that the real part of the potential at an infinite water depth,

r
, is known, another
derivation of the 2-D potential is given by Porter [1960]. The additional potential for a
restricted water depth,
, will be determined in such a way that it fulfils the free surface
condition and - together with

r
- also the boundary condition at the seabed.
As a start for the real additional potential will be chosen:

Equation 3.351
The imaginary part of integral in Equation 3.348 has been treated in Appendix III.
The hydrodynamic loads can be found from an integration of the pressures on the hull of the
oscillating body in (previously) still water. With a known potential, these pressures can be
found from the linear part of the instationary pressures as follows from the Bernoulli equation:

j
t
p p p
stat dyn
The potential is in-phase with the oscillation velocity. To obtain the phase of the pressures
with respect to the oscillatory motion a phase shift of
0
90 is required, which means a
multiplication with j . Then the pressure is:

dyn
p
The hydrodynamic force on the body is equal to the integrated pressure on the body. In the
two-dimensional case, this is a force per unit length.
The vertical force becomes:

The hydrodynamic mass for 0 in shallow water remains finite. Because the multi-

It is obvious that Equation 3.356 - just as Equation 3.355 - provides an infinite value.

Thus, ( ) 2 B AV has at 0 2 B a vertical tangent.
The fact that the hydrodynamic mass goes to infinity for zero frequency can be explained
physically as follows. The smaller the frequency becomes, the longer becomes the radiated
wave and the faster travels it away from the cylinder. In the borderline case 0 has the
wave an infinite length and it travels away - just as the pressure (incompressible fluid) - with
an infinite velocity. This means that all fluid particles are in phase with the motions of the
body. This means that the hydrodynamic force is in phase with the motion of the body, which
holds too that:

The finite value of the hydrodynamic mass at shallow water is physically hard to interpret. A
full explanation is not given here. However, it has been shown here that the result makes some
sense. At shallow water can the wave (even in an incompressible fluid) not travel with an
infinite velocity; its maximum velocity is h g . In case of long waves at shallow water, the
energy has the same velocity. From that can be concluded that at low decreasing frequencies
the damping part in the hydrodynamic force will increase. This means that:

3.3.4 Horizontal Motions

The first four assumptions for the vertical motions are valid for horizontal motions too. The
potential must fulfil the motion-dependent boundary conditions, which have been substituted
in Equation 3.33 through Equation 3.36. However, the fifth boundary condition needs here
a new formulation.

Rayleigh and is given in the literature by Lamb [1932] for an infinite water depth.
In this approach, a viscous force w will be included in the Euler equations, is the
dynamic viscosity and w is the velocity. Because the fluid is assumed to be non-viscous, in a
later stage this dynamic viscosity will be set to zero.
From the Euler equation follows with this viscosity force the with time changing pressure

3.4 Potential Theory of Frank
As a consequence of conformal mapping of a cross section to the unit circle, the cross section
needs to have a certain breadth at the water surface. Fully submersed cross sections - such as
at the bulbous bow - cannot be mapped. Mapping problems can also appear for cross sections
with a very high or low area coefficient. These cases require another approach: the pulsating
source method of Frank or the so-called Frank Close-Fit Method.
For explaining this method as it has been used in the computer code SEAWAY, relevant parts
of the report of Frank [1967] have been copied to this Section, supplemented with some
numerical improvements.
Hydrodynamic research of horizontal cylinders oscillating in or below the free surface of a
deep fluid has increased in importance in the last decades and has been studied by a number of
investigators. The history of this subject began with Ursell [1949], who formulated and solved
the boundary-value problem for the semi-immersed heaving circular cylinder within the
framework of linearised free-surface theory. He represented the velocity potential as the sum
of an infinite set of multi-poles, each satisfying the linear free-surface condition and each
being multiplied by a coefficient determined by requiring the series to satisfy the kinematic
boundary condition at a number of points on the cylinder.
Grim [1953] used a variation of the Ursell method to solve the problem for two-parameter
Lewis form cylinders by conformal mapping onto a circle. Tasai [1959] and Porter [1960],
using the Ursell approach obtained the added mass and damping for oscillating contours
mappable onto a circle by the more general Theodorsen transformation. Ogilvie [1963]
calculated the hydrodynamic forces on completely submerged heaving circular cylinders.
Despite the success of the multi-pole expansion-mapping methods, Frank [1967] discussed the
problem from a different point of view. The velocity potential is represented by a distribution
of sources over the submerged cross section. The density of the sources is an unknown
function (of position along the contour) to be determined from integral equations found by
applying the kinematic boundary condition on the submerged part of the cylinder. The
hydrodynamic pressures are obtained from the velocity potential by means of the linearised
Bernoulli equation. Integration of these pressures over the immersed portion of the cylinder
yields the hydrodynamic forces or moments.

3.4.2 Formulation of the Problem
Consider a cylinder, whose cross section is a simply connected region, which is fully or
partially immersed horizontally in a previously undisturbed fluid of infinite depth. The body is
forced into simple harmonic motion and it is assumed that steady state conditions have been
attained.
The two-dimensional nature of the problem implies three degrees of freedom of motion.
Therefore, consider the following three types of oscillatory motions: vertical or heave,
horizontal or sway and rotational about a horizontal axis or roll.
To use linearised free-surface theory, the following assumptions are made:
1. the fluid is incompressible and inviscid,
2. the effects of surface tension are negligible,
3. the fluid is irrotational and
4. the motion amplitudes and velocities are small enough that all but the linear terms of the
free-surface condition, the kinematic boundary condition on the cylinder and the Bernoulli
equation may be neglected.
For complete discussions of linearised free-surface theory, Frank refers the reader to Stoker
[1957] and Wehausen and Laitone [1960].
Given the above conditions and assumptions, the problem reduces to the following boundary-
value problem of potential theory. The cylinder is forced into simple harmonic motion
( )
( ) t A

may take on the values 2, 3 and 4, denoting swaying, heaving and rolling motions,
respectively.

This is the kinematic boundary condition on the oscillating body surface, being satisfied at
the mean (rest) position of the cylindrical surface.
5. The radiation condition that the disturbed surface of the fluid takes the form of regular
progressive outgoing gravity waves at large distances from the cylinder.

cylinder, as will be shown in the following section.
The fact that ( ) s Q is complex implies that Equation 3.412 represent a set of two coupled
integral equations for the real functions ( ) { } s Q Re and ( ) { } s Q Im . The solution of these integral
equations and the evaluation of the kernel and potential integrals are described in the
following section and in Appendices II and III, respectively.
3.4.3 Solution of the Problem
Since ship sections are symmetrical, this investigation is confined to bodies with right and left
symmetry.
Take the x -axis to be coincident with the undisturbed free surface of a conventional two-
dimensional Cartesian co-ordinate system. Let the cross sectional contour
0
C of the
submerged portion of the cylinder be in the lower half plane, the y -axis being the axis of
symmetry of
0
C ; see Figure 3.41.

Equation 3.412 is applied at the midpoints of each of the N segments and it is assumed that
over an individual segment the complex source strength ( ) s Q remains constant, although it
varies from segment to segment. With these stipulations, the set of coupled integral equations
(Equation 3.412) becomes a set of N 2 linear algebraic equations in the unknowns:

to refer to this term as being 180 degrees out-of-phase with the acceleration or in-

The velocity potentials for very small and very large frequencies are derived and discussed in

For very small frequencies, i.e., as 0 , the free-surface condition in Equation 3.43 of the
section formulating the problem degenerates into the wall-boundary condition:

on 0 y and outside the cylinder.
Equation 3.42, Equation 3.44 and Equation 3.45 remain valid for both asymptotic cases.
The radiation condition is replaced by a condition of boundedness at infinity.
Therefore, there is a Neumann problem for the case 0 and a mixed problem when

It remains to be shown whether these two problems are, in the language of potential theory,
well posed, i.e., whether the solutions to these problems lead to unique forces or moments.

Considering the Neumann problem, note that the constant

a completely submerged cylinder the cross sectional contour

that the contribution of K in integrating the product of the pressure with the direction cosine
of the body-surface velocity vanishes. For partially submerged bodies

3.4.5 Irregular Frequencies
John [1950] proved the existence and uniqueness of the solutions to the three- and two-
dimensional potential problems pertaining to oscillations of rigid bodies in a free surface. The

solutions were subject to the provisions that no point of the immersed surface of the body
would be outside a cylinder drawn vertically downward from the intersection of the body with
the free surface and that the free surface would be intersected orthogonally by the body in its
mean or rest position.
John [1950] also showed that for a set of discrete ''irregular'' frequencies the Green's function-
integral equation method failed to give a solution. He demonstrated that the irregular
frequencies.
Let ( ) y x, be such that:

number corresponding to the irregular frequency

For a rectangular cylinder with beam B and draft T , the irregular wave numbers may be
easily obtained by separation of variables in the Laplace equation. Separating variables gives

Equation 3.435
is a relation that John proved for general shapes complying with the restrictions previously
outlined.
For a beam-to-draft ratio of 5 . 2 T B : 48 . 1
1
, while for 0 . 2 T B : 71 . 1
1
.
At an irregular frequency the matrix of influence coefficients of Equation 3.423 becomes
singular as the number of defining points per cross section increases without limit, i,e., as
N . In practice, with finite N , the determinant of this matrix becomes very small, not
only at the irregular frequency but also at an interval about this frequency. This interval can be
reduced by increasing the number of defining points N for the cross section.
Most surface vessels have nearly constant draft over the length of the ship and the maximum
beam occurs at or near amidships, where the cross section is usually almost rectangular, so
that for most surface ships the first irregular frequency
1
is less for the midsection than for
any other cross section.
As an example, for a ship with a 7:1 length-to-beam and a 5:2 beam-to-draft, the first irregular
wave encounter frequency - in non-dimensional form with L denoting the ship length -
occurs at 09 . 5
1
g L , which is beyond the range of practical interest for ship-motion
analysis.
Therefore, for slender surface vessels, the phenomenon of the first irregular frequency of
wave encounter is not too important.
Increasing the number of contour line elements (or panels in 3-D) does not remove the
irregular frequency, but tends to restrict the effects to a narrower band around it; see for
instance Huijsmans [1996]. It should be mentioned too that irregular frequencies appear for
free surface piercing bodies only; fully submerged bodies do not display these characteristics.
An effective method to reduce the effects of irregular frequencies is ''closing'' the body by
means of a discretisation of the free surface inside the body, i.e. putting a ''lid'' on the free
surface inside the body.
See here the computed added mass and damping of a hemisphere in Figure 3.42. The solid
line in this figure results from including the ''lid''.

Figure 3.51: Comparison of various calculated potential coefficients
With the exception of the roll motions, the three results are very close. The roll motion
deviation, predicted with the Lewis conformal mapping method, is caused by a too much
rounded description of the ''bilge'' by the simple Lewis transformation.
A disadvantage of Frank's method could be the relatively large computing time, when
compared with Ursell-Tasai's method. However - because of the significantly increased
computing speed of nowadays computers - this should not be a problem anymore.
Generally, it is advised to use the very robust Ursell-Tasai's method with 10 parameter close-
fit conformal mapping.
For submerged sections, bulbous sections and sections with an area coefficient
s
less than
0.4 however, Frank's pulsating source method should be used.

These frequency-dependent hydrodynamic coefficients do not include three-dimensional

expected - will be adapted here empirically.

4 Viscous Damping
The strip theory is based on the potential flow theory. This holds that viscous effects are
neglected, which can deliver serious problems when predicting roll motions at resonance
frequencies. In practice, viscous roll damping effects can be accounted for by empirical
formulas. For surge and roll, additional damping coefficients have to be introduced. Because
of these additional contributions to the damping are from a viscous origin mainly, it is not
possible to calculate the total damping in a pure theoretical way.

The decay coefficient can therefore be estimated from the decaying oscillation by
determining the ratio between any pair of successive (double) amplitudes. When the damping
is very small and the oscillation decays very slowly, several estimates of the decay can be
obtained from a single record. It is obvious that for a linear system a constant -value should
be found in relation to
a
.
Note that these decay tests provide no information about the relation between the potential
coefficients and the frequency of oscillation. Indeed, this is impossible since decay tests are
carried out at only one frequency: the natural frequency. These experiments deliver no
information on the relation with the frequency of oscillation.
The method is not really practical when is much greater than about 0.2 and is in any case
strictly valid for small values of only. Luckily, this is generally the case.
Be aware that this damping coefficient is determined by assuming an uncoupled roll motion
(no other motions involved). Strictly, this damping coefficient is not valid for the actual
coupled motions of a ship that will be moving in all directions simultaneously.

4.2.4 Semi-Empirical Method of Ikeda
Because the viscous part of the roll damping acts upon the viscosity of the fluid significantly,
it is not possible to calculate the total roll damping coefficient in a pure theoretical way.
Besides this, also experiments showed a non-linear behaviour of viscous parts of the roll
damping.
Sometimes, for applications in frequency domain, an equivalent linear roll damping
coefficient,
( ) 1
44v
B , has to be determined. This coefficient can be obtained by stipulating that

J.M.J. Journe and L.J.M. Adegeest Revision: 14-12-2003

an equivalent linear roll damping dissipates an identical amount of energy as the non-linear
roll damping. This results for a linearised quadratic roll damping coefficient,

For the estimation of the non-potential parts of the roll damping, use has been made of work
published by Ikeda, Himeno and Tanaka [1978]. A few sub-ordinate parts have been modified
and this empirical method is called here the ''Ikeda method''.
This Ikeda method estimates the following linear components of the roll damping coefficient
of a ship:

F

the frictional roll damping coefficient,

the eddy making roll damping coefficient,

the lift roll damping coefficient and

is given by:

Equation 4.218
Ikeda, Himeno and Tanaka [1978] claim fairly good agreements between their prediction
method and experimental results. They conclude that the method can be used safely for
ordinary ship forms, which conclusion has been confirmed by the author too. But for unusual
ship forms, for very full ship forms and for ships with a very large breadth to draft ratio the
method is not always accurate sufficiently.
For numerical reasons three restrictions have to be made:
if, locally, 999 . 0 >
s
then: 999 . 0
s
.
if, locally,
s s
D OG < then:
s s
D OG .
if a calculated component of the viscous roll damping coefficient becomes less than zero,
this component has to be set to zero.

Ikeda obtained an empirical formula for the three-dimensional forward speed correction on
the zero speed potential damping by making use of the general characteristics of a doublet
flow model. Two doublets have represented the rolling ship: one at the stern and one at the
bow of the ship.
With this, semi-theoretically the forward speed effect on the linear potential damping
coefficient has been approximated as a fraction of the potential damping coefficient by:

4.2.4.4 Eddy Making Damping,
E
B
44
At zero forward speed the eddy making roll damping for the naked hull is mainly caused by
vortices, generated by a two-dimensional separation. From a number of experiments with two-
dimensional cylinders it was found that for a naked hull this component of the roll moment is
proportional to the roll frequency squared and the roll amplitude squared. This means that the
corresponding quadratic roll damping coefficient does not depend on the
period parameter but on the hull form only.
When using a simple form for the pressure distribution on the hull surface it appears that the
pressure coefficient
p
C is a function of the ratio of the maximum relative velocity

U to
the mean velocity

It may be noted that for full-scale ships, because of the higher Reynolds number, the frictional
part of the roll damping is expected to be smaller than showed above.

With the approach as mentioned before, a description will be given here of the determination
of the hydromechanical forces and moments for all six modes of motions.
In the ''Ordinary Strip Theory'', as published by Korvin-Kroukovsky and Jacobs [1957] and
others, the uncoupled two-dimensional potential hydromechanical loads in the direction j are
defined by:
{ }

RSj hj jj hj jj hj

(Ordinary Strip Theory, OST)

(Modified Strip Theory, MST)
In these definitions of the two-dimensional hydromechanical load,

oscillatory motion,
'
jj
M and
'
jj
N are the two-dimensional potential mass and damping and
the non-diffraction part
'
RSj
X is the two-dimensional quasi-static restoring spring term.
At all following pages, the hydromechanical load has been calculated in the ( )
b b b
z y x G , , axes
system with the centre of gravity G in the still water level, so 0 OG .
Some of the terms in the hydromechanical loads have been outlined there:
the ''Modified Strip Theory'' (OST) includes these outlined terms, but
when ignoring these outlined terms, the ''Ordinary Strip Theory'' (MST) has been
presented.

6.3 Approximating 2-D Diffraction Approach
In the classic relative motion theory, the average (or equivalent) motions of the water particles
around the cross section are calculated from the pressure distribution in the undisturbed waves
on this cross section. An alternative approach - based on diffraction of waves - to determine
the equivalent accelerations and velocities of the water particles around the cross section, as
given by Journee and van t Veer [1995], is described now.
Suppose an infinite long cylinder in the still water surface of a fluid. The cylinder is forced to
carry out a simple harmonic oscillation about its initial position with frequency of oscillation
and small amplitude of displacement

Equation 6.31

X in the sway, heave and roll directions i , exercised by the
fluid on a cross section of the cylinder, can be obtained from the 2-D velocity potentials and
the linearised equations of Bernoulli. The velocity potentials have been obtained by using the
work of Ursell [1949] and N -parameter conformal mapping. These hydrodynamic loads are:

Equation 6.32
in where j is the mode of oscillation and i is the direction of the load. The phase lag

defined as the phase lag between the velocity potential of the fluid and the forced motion
j

ja
and
wl
y is half the breadth of the
cross section at the waterline. The potential coefficients

It may be noted that the sign of the relative motion is chosen here in such a way that a positive
relative displacement implies a decrease of the freeboard.
An oscillating ship will produce waves and these phenomena will change the relative motion.
A dynamical swell up should be taken into account, which is not included in the previous
formulation.
Notice the different behaviours of the absolute and relative vertical motions, as given in

8 Anti-Rolling Devices
Since the disappearance of sails on ocean-going ships, with their stabilising wind effect on the
rolling motions, naval architects have been concerned in reducing the rolling of ships among
waves. With bilge keels they performed a first successful attack on the problem of rolling, but
in several cases these bilge keels did not prove to be sufficient. Since 1880, numerous other
more or less successful ideas have been tested and used.
Four types of anti-rolling devices and its contribution to the equations of motion are described
here:
bilge keels
passive free-surface tanks
active fin stabilisers
active rudder stabilisers.
The active fin and rudder stabilisers are not built into the program SEAWAY yet.

8.1 Bilge Keels
Bilge keels can deliver an important contribution to an increase the damping of the rolling
motions of ships. A reliable method to determine this contribution is given by Ikeda, Himeno
and Tanaka [1978], as described before.
Ikeda divides the two-dimensional quadratic bilge keel roll damping into a component due to
the normal force on the bilge keels and a component due to the pressure on the hull surface,
created by the bilge keels.
The normal force component of the bilge keel damping has been deduced from experimental
results of oscillating flat plates. The drag coefficient
D
C depends on the period parameter or
the Keulegan-Carpenter number. Ikeda measured the quadratic two-dimensional drag by
carrying out free rolling experiments with an ellipsoid with and without bilge keels.
Assuming a pressure distribution on the hull caused by the bilge keels, a quadratic two-
dimensional roll damping can be defined. Ikeda carried out experiments to measure the
pressure on the hull surface created by bilge keels. He found that the coefficient
+
p
C of the
pressure on the front face of the bilge keel does not depend on the period parameter, while the
coefficient

p
C of the pressure on the back face of the bilge keel and the length of the
negative pressure region depend on the period parameter. Ikeda defines an equivalent length
of a constant negative pressure region
0
S over the height of the bilge keels and a two-
dimensional roll-damping component can be found.
The total bilge keel damping has been obtained by integrating these two two-dimensional roll-
damping components over the length of the bilge keels.
Experiments of Ikeda showed that the effect of forward speed on the roll damping due to the
bilge keels could be ignored.
The equivalent linear total bilge keel damping has been obtained by linearising the result, as
has been shown in a separate Chapter.

8.2 Passive Free-Surface Tanks
The roll damping, caused by a passive free-surface tank, is essentially based on the existence
of a hydraulic jump or bore in the tank. Verhagen and van Wijngaarden [1965] give a
theoretical approach to determine the counteracting moments by free-surface anti-rolling
tanks. Van den Bosch and Vughts [1966] give extended quantitative information on these
moments.
8.2.1 Theoretical Approach
When a tank that contains a fluid with a free surface is forced to carry out roll oscillations,
resonance frequencies can be obtained with high wave amplitudes at lower water depths.
Under these circumstances a hydraulic jump or bore is formed, which travels periodically
back and forth between the walls of the tank. This hydraulic jump can be a strongly non-linear
phenomenon. A theory, based on gas-dynamics for the shock wave in a gas flow under similar
resonance circumstances, as given by Verhagen and van Wijngaarden [1965], has been
adapted and used to describe the motions of the fluid. For low and high frequencies and the
frequencies near to the natural frequency, different approaches have been used.
Observe a rectangular tank with a length l and a breadth b , which has been filled until a
water level h with a fluid with a mass density . The distance of the tank bottom above the
centre of gravity of the vessel is s . Figure 8.21 shows a 2-D sketch of this tank with the axis
system and notations.
Figure 8.21: Axes System and Notations of an Oscillating Tank
The natural frequency of the surface waves in a harmonic rolling tank appears as the wave
length in the tank equals twice the breadth b , so: b 2
0
.
With the wave number and the dispersion relation:

it follows for the natural frequency of surface waves in the tank:

Verhagen and van Wijngaarden [1965] have investigated the shallow water wave loads in a
rolling rectangular container, with the centre of rotation at the bottom of the container. Their
expressions for the internal wave loads are rewritten and modified to be useful for any
arbitrary vertical position of the centre of rotation by Journe [1997]. For low and high
frequencies and the frequencies close to the natural frequency, different approaches have been
used. A calculation routine has been made to connect these regions.
8.2.1.1 Low and High Frequencies
The harmonic roll motion of the tank is defined by:
( ) t
a
sin
In the axis-system of Figure 8.21 and after linearisation, the vertical displacement of the tank
bottom is described by:
+ y s z
and the surface elevation of the fluid is described by:
+ + h s z
Relative to the bottom of the tank, the linearised surface elevation of the fluid is described by:
+ y h
Using the shallow water theory, the continuity and momentum equations are:

In these formulations, $v$ denotes the velocity of the fluid in the y -direction and the vertical
pressure distribution is assumed to be hydrostatic. Therefore, the acceleration in the z -
direction, introduced by the excitation, must be small with respect to the acceleration of
gravity g , so:
g b
a
<<

The boundary conditions for v have been determined by the velocity produced in the
horizontal direction by the excitation. Between the surface of the fluid and the bottom of the
tank, the velocity of the fluid v varies between
s
v and [ ] h k v
s
cosh with a mean velocity:
( ) h k v

. However, in very shallow water v does not vary between the bottom and the
surface. When taking the value at the surface, it is required that:

8.2.1.2 Natural Frequency Region
For frequencies near to the natural frequency

, the expression for the surface elevation of
the fluid goes to infinity. Experiments showed the appearance of a hydraulic jump or a bore
at these frequencies. Obviously, then the linearised equations are not valid anymore.
Verhagen and van Wijngaarden [1965] solved the problem by using the approach in gas
dynamics, when a column of gas has been oscillated at small amplitude, e.g. by a piston. At

8.2.1.3 Comparison with Experimental Data

The roll moments have been calculated here for low and high frequencies and for frequencies
near to the natural frequency of the tank. A calculation routine connects these three regions.

surface tanks, used as an anti-rolling device. Extended quantitative information on the
counteracting moments, caused by the water transfer in the tank, has been provided.

It is obvious that in case of several springs, a linear superposition of the coefficients can be
used.
When using linear springs, generally 12 sets of coupled equations with the in and out of phase
terms of the motions have to be solved. Because of these springs, the surge, heave and pitch
motions will be coupled then with the sway, roll and yaw motions.

9.3 Linearised Mooring Coefficients
Figure Figure 9.31 shows an example of results of static catenary line calculations, see for
instance Korkut and Hebert [1970], for an anchored platform.
Figure 9.31: Horizontal Forces on a Floating Structure as Function of Surge Displacements
Figure 9.31-a shows the platform anchored by two anchor lines of chain at 100 m water
depth. Figure 9.31-b shows the horizontal forces at the suspension points of both anchor
lines as a function of the horizontal displacement of the platform. Finally, Figure 9.31-c
shows the relation between the total horizontal force on the platform and its horizontal
displacement.
This figure shows clearly the non-linear relation between the horizontal force on the platform
and its horizontal displacement.
A linearised spring coefficient, to be used in frequency domain computations, can be obtained
from Figure 9.31-c by determining an average restoring spring coefficient,

10 Added Resistance due to Waves
A ship moving forward in a wave field will generate ''two sets of waves'': waves associated
with forward speed through still water and waves associated with its vertical relative motion
response to waves. Since both wave patterns dissipate energy, it is logical to conclude that a
ship moving through still water will dissipate less energy than one moving through waves.
The extra wave-induced loss of energy can be treated as an added propulsion resistance.
Figure 9.31 shows the resistance in regular waves as a function of the time: a constant part
due the calm water resistance and an oscillating part due to the motions of the ship, relative to
the incoming regular waves. The time-averaged part of the increase of resistance is called: the

Figure 9.31: Increase of Resistance in Regular Waves
Two theoretical methods have been used for the estimation of the time-averaged added
resistance of a ship due to the waves and the resulting ship motions:
a radiated wave energy method, as introduced by Gerritsma and Beukelman [1972],
suitable for head to beam waves.
an integrated pressure method, as introduced by Boese [1970], suitable for all wave
directions.
Because of the added resistance of a ship due to the waves is proportional to the relative
motions squared, its inaccuracy will be gained strongly by inaccuracies in the predicted
motions.
The transfer function of the mean added resistance is presented as:

Equation 10.11
This method gives good results in head to beam waves. However, in following waves this
method could fail.
When the wave speed in following waves approaches the ship speed the frequency of
encounter in the denominator tends to zero, 0
e
. At these low frequencies, the potential
sectional mass is very high and the potential sectional damping is almost zero. The damping
multiplied with the relative velocity squared in the nominator does not tend to zero, as fast as
the frequency of encounter. This is caused by the presence of a natural frequency for heave
and pitch at this low
e
, so a high motion peak can be expected. This results into an extreme

longitudinal component of the vertical hydrodynamic and wave forces has been added.

The input values for the calculation of shear forces and bending and torsion moments are
often more or less inaccurate. Mostly small adaptations are necessary, for instance to avoid a
remaining calculated bending moment at the forward end of the ship.
The total mass of the ship is found by an integration of the mass per unit length:

It is obvious that this integrated mass should be equal to the mass of displacement, calculated
from the underwater hull form:

Both terms will be calculated from independently derived data, so small deviations are
possible. A proportional correction of the masses per unit length ( )

can be used, see
Figure 10.33.
Then ( )

For obtaining the dynamic parts of the vertical shear forces and the vertical bending moments
in regular waves, reference is given to Fukuda [1962]. For the lateral mode and the roll mode
a similar procedure can be followed. This will be showed in the following Sections.

12 Statistics in Irregular Waves
To compare the calculated behaviour of different ship designs or to get an impression of the
behaviour of a specific ship design in a seaway, standard representations of the wave energy
distributions are necessary.
Three well-known types of normalised wave energy spectra are described here:
the Neumann wave spectrum, a somewhat wide wave spectrum, which is sometimes used
for open sea areas
the Bretschneider wave spectrum, an average wave spectrum, frequently used in open sea
areas
the Mean JONSWAP wave spectrum, a narrow wave spectrum, frequently used in North
Sea areas.
The mathematical formulations of these normalised uni-directional wave energy spectra are
based on two parameters:
the significant wave height
3 / 1
H
the average wave period
1
T , based on the centroid of the spectral area curve.
To obtain the average zero-crossing period
2
T or the spectral peak period
p
T , a fixed relation
with
1
T can be used not-truncated spectra.
From these wave energy spectra and the transfer functions of the responses, the response
energy spectra can be obtained.
Generally the frequency ranges of the energy spectra of the waves and the responses of the
ship on these waves are not very wide. Then the Rayleigh distribution can be used to obtain a
probability density function of the maximum and minimum values of the waves and the
responses. With this function, the probabilities on exceeding threshold values by the ship
motions can be calculated.
Bow slamming phenomena are defined by a relative bow velocity criterion and a peak bottom
impact pressure criterion.

12.1 Normalised Wave Energy Spectra
Three mathematical definitions with two parameters of normalized spectra of irregular uni-
directional waves have been described:
the Neumann wave spectrum, a somewhat wide spectrum
the Bretschneider wave spectrum, an average spectrum
the mean JONSWAP wave spectrum, a narrow spectrum
A comparison of the Neumann, the Bretschneider and the mean JONSWAP wave spectra is
given here for a sea state with a significant wave height of 4 meters and an average wave
period of 8 seconds.

Another name of this wave spectrum is the Modified Two-Parameter Pierson-Moskowitz
Wave Spectrum.
This formulation is accepted by the 2nd International Ship Structures Congress in 1967 and
the 12th International Towing Tank Conference in 1969 as a standard for seakeeping
calculations and model experiments. This is reason why this spectrum is also called I.S.S.C.
or I.T.T.C. Wave Spectrum.
The original One-Parameter Pierson-Moskowitz Wave Spectrum for fully developed seas can
be obtained from this definition by using a fixed relation between the significant wave height
and the average wave period in this Bretschneider definition:
3 / 1 1
861 . 3 H T .
12.1.3 Mean JONSWAP Wave Spectrum
In 1968 and 1969 an extensive wave measurement program, known as the Joint North Sea
Wave Project (JONSWAP) was carried out along a line extending over 100 miles into the
North Sea from Sylt Island. From analysis of the measured spectra, a spectral formulation of
wind generated seas with a fetch limitation was found.
The following definition of a Mean JONSWAP wave spectrum is advised by the 15th ITTC in
1978 for fetch limited situations:

Sometimes, a third free parameter is introduced in the JONSWAP wave spectrum by varying
the peakedness factor .

Truncation of wave spectra during numerical calculations can cause differences between input
and calculated wave periods. Generally, the wave heights will not differ much.
In Figure 12.12 and Table 12.11 - for ''Open Ocean Areas'' and ''North Sea Areas'' - an
indication is given of a possible average relation between the scale of Beaufort or the wind
velocity at 19.5 meters above the sea level and the significant wave height
3 / 1
H and the
average wave periods

T or
2
T .
Notice that these data are an indication only. A generally applicable fixed relation between
wave heights and wave periods does not exist.

equal to twice the forward ship speed component in the direction of the wave propagation, the
transformed spectral values will range from plus infinite to minus infinite. This implies that
numerical problems will arise in the numerical integration routine.

12.3 Shipping Green Water
The effective dynamic freeboard will differ from the results obtained from the geometric
freeboard at zero forward speed in still water and the calculated vertical relative motions of a
sailing ship in waves.
When sailing in still water, sinkage, trim and the ship's wave system will effect the local
geometric freeboard. A static swell up should be taken into account.
An empirical formula, based on model experiments, for the static swell up at the forward
perpendicular is given by Tasaki [1963]:

with:
e

f geometric freeboard at the forward perpendicular
L length of the ship
E

Fn Froude number
An oscillating ship will produce waves and these dynamic phenomena will influence the
amplitude of the relative motion. A dynamic swell up should be taken into account.
Tasaki [1963] carried out forced oscillation tests with ship models in still water and obtained
an empirical formula for the dynamic swell-up at the forward perpendicular in head waves:

In this formula
a
s is the amplitude of the relative motion at the forward perpendicular as
obtained in head waves, calculated from the heave, the pitch and the wave motions.
Then the actual amplitude of the relative motions becomes:

12.4 Bow Slamming
Slamming is a two-node vibration of the ship caused by suddenly pushing the ship by the
waves. A complete prediction of slamming phenomena is a complex task, which is beyond the
scope of any existing theory.
Slamming impact pressures are affected by the local hull section shape, the relative velocity
between ship and waves at impact, the relative angle between the keel and the water surface,
the local flexibility of the ship's bottom plating and the overall flexibility of the ship's
structure.
12.4.1 Criterium of Ochi
Ochi [1964] translated slamming phenomena into requirements for the vertical relative
motions of the ship.
He defined slamming by:
an emergence of the bow of the ship at 10 percentile of the length aft of the forward
perpendiculars
an exceeding of a certain critical value at the instance of impact by the vertical relative
velocity, without forward speed effect, between the wave surface and the bow of the ship
Ochi defines the vertical relative displacement and velocity of the water particles with respect
to the keel point of the ship by:

x z s

b e a e x

So a forward speed effect ( V -term) is not included in this vertical relative velocity. The
spectral moments of the vertical relative displacements and velocities are defined by
s
m
0
and
s
m
& 0
.
Emergence of the bow of the ship happens when the vertical relative displacement amplitude
a
s at L 90 . 0 is larger than the ship's draft
s
D at this location.
The probability of emergence of the bow follows from:
{ }

'

s

The second requirement states that the vertical relative velocity exceeds a threshold value.
According to Ochi, 12 feet per second can be taken as a threshold value for a ship with a
length of 520 feet.
Scaling results into:
L g s
cr
0928 . 0 &
The probability of exceeding this threshold value is:

Both occurrences, emergence of the bow and exceeding the threshold velocity, are statistically
independent. In case of slamming both occurrences have to appear at the same time.
So the probability on a slam is the product of the both independent probabilities:

12.4.2 Criterium of Conolly
Conolly [1974] translated slamming phenomena into requirements for the peak impact
pressure of the ship.
He defined slamming by:
an emergence of the bow of the ship
an exceeding of a certain critical value by the peak impact pressure at this location.
The peak impact pressure is defined by:
2

1
cr p
s C p &
The coefficient
p
C has been taken from experimental data of slamming drop tests with
wedges and cones, as given in literature.
Some of these data, as for instance presented by Lloyd [1989] as a function of the deadrise
angle , are illustrated in Figure 12.41.
Figure 12.41: Peak Impact Pressure Coefficients
An equivalent deadrise angle is defined here by the determination of an equivalent wedge.
The contour of the cross section inside 10 percentile of the half breadth 2 B of the ship has
been used to define an equivalent wedge with a half breadth: 2 10 . 0 B b .
Theoretical Manual of SEAWAY for Windows TUD Report No. 1370
J.M.J. Journe and L.J.M. Adegeest Revision: 14-12-2003
304
The accessory draught t of the wedge follows from the section contour. In the fore body of
the ship, this draught can be larger than 10 percentile of the amidships draught T . If so, the
section contour below T 10 . 0 has been used to define an equivalent wedge: T t 10 . 0 . If
this draught is larger than the local draught, the local draught has been used.
The accessory half breadth b of the wedge follows from the section contour.
Figure 12.42: Definition of an Equivalent Wedge
Then the sectional area
s
A below local draught t has to be calculated.
Now the equivalent deadrise angle follows from:

Critical peak impact pressures
cr
p have been taken from Conolly [1974]. He gives measured
impact pressures at a ship with a length of 112 meter over 30 per cent of the ship length from
forward. From this, a lower limit of
cr
p has been assumed. This lower limit is presented in
Figure 12.43.
Figure 12.43: Measured Impact Pressures of a 112 Meter Ship
These values have to be scaled to the actual ship size. Bow emergence and exceeding of this
limit is supposed to cause slamming.

vertical relative velocity too:

13 Twin-Hull Ships
When not taking into account the interaction effects between the two individual hulls, the
wave loads and motions of twin-hull ships can be calculated easily. Each individual hull has to
be symmetric with respect to its centre plane. The distance between the two centre planes of
the single hulls (
T
y 2 ) should be constant. The co-ordinate system for the equations of
motion of a twin-hull ship is given in Figure 12.41.

14 Numerical Recipes
Some typical numerical recipes, as used in the strip theory program SEAWAY, are described
in more detail here.
14.1 Polynomials
Discrete points can be connected by a first degree or a second degree polynomial, see Figure
14.11-a,b.
Figure 14.11: First and Second Order Polynomials Through Discrete Points
14.1.1 First Degree Polynomial
A first degree - or linear - polynomial, as given in Figure 14.11-a, is defined by:
( ) b x a x f +
with in the interval
0
x x x
m
< < the following coefficients:
( ) ( )
( )
0 0

## and in the interval

0
the following coefficients:
( ) ( )
( )
0 0
0
0
x a x f b
x x
x f x f
a
p
p

Notice that only one interval is required for obtaining the coefficients in that interval.

J.M.J. Journe and L.J.M. Adegeest Revision: 14-12-2003
318
14.1.2 Second Degree Polynomial
A second-degree polynomial, as given in Figure 14.11-b, is defined by:
( ) c x b x a x f + +
2
with in the interval
p m

14.2 Integrations
Either the trapezoid rule or Simpsons general rule can carry out numerical integration.
SEAWAY uses Simpson's general rule as a standard. Then, the integration has to be carried
out over a number of sets of two intervals, see Figure 14.11-b. Numerical inaccuracies can
be expected when
0 0
x x x x
p m
<< or
m p
x x x x <<
0 0
. In those cases the trapezoid rule
has to be preferred, see Figure 14.11-a.
SEAWAY makes the choice between the use of the trapezoid rule and Simpson's rule
automatically, based on the following requirements:
Trapezoid rile, if: 2 . 0
0
<

m p
m
x x
x x
or 0 . 5
0
>

m p
m
x x
x x
Simpsons rule, if: 0 . 5 2 . 0
0
<

<
m p
m
x x
x x
14.2.1 First Degree Integration
First-degree integration - carried out by the trapezoid rule, see Figure 14.11-a - means the
use of a linear function:
( ) b x a x f +
The integral over the interval
0
x x
p
becomes:
( ) ( )

## 14.2.2 Second Degree Integration

Second-degree integration - carried out by Simpson's rule, see Figure 14.11-b has to be
carried out over a set of two intervals. At each of the two intervals, the integrand is described
by a second-degree polynomial:
( ) c x b x a x f + +

## 14.2.3 Integration of Wave Loads

The total wave loads can be written as:
( )
{ } ( ) { } ( ) t F t F
t F F
e F wa e F wa
F e wa w
w w

## sin sin cos cos

The in-phase and out-phase parts of the total wave loads have to be obtained from
longitudinal integration of sectional values. Direct numerical integration of
{ }
b
F
wa
dx F

'
cos
'
and { }

'
sin
'
over the ship length, L , require integration
intervals,
b
x , which are much smaller than the smallest wave length, 10
min

b
x . This
means that a large number of cross sections are required.
This can be avoided by writing the integrands in terms of ( ) dx x x f cos
1
and ( ) dx x x f sin
2
,
in which the integrands ( ) x f
2 , 1
vary much slower over short wave lengths as the harmonics
itself.

J.M.J. Journe and L.J.M. Adegeest Revision: 14-12-2003

The functions ( ) x f

can be approximated by a second degree polynomial:
