Hydrodynamic properties of multiple floating and submerged bodies analyzed by a panel method
Paper in proceedings, 1992
A computer programme based on a panel method is developed in order to investigate the interaction between waves and a system of floating and submerged bodies. Small-amplitude waves and motions and irrotational flow are assumed and the resulting linear problem is solved in the frequency domain with six degrees of freedom of each body. The developed computer programme is made efficient by using the Haskind relation for the calculation of forces and the symmetry or double symmetry of symmetric configurations.
