A method to analyse seakeeping model measurements in time domain
1999 (English)In: Proceedings of the 1999 Ninth International Offshore and Polar Engineering Conference (Volume 3), 1999, 629-634 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The paper introduces a method to determine a wave equation from a measured wave system. The method is applied to wave measurements recorded in a seakeeping experiment. The obtained wave equations accurately repeat the wave gauge signals. The wave equation provides a link between a numerical and physical model test. This is verified for heave and pitch motions of the ship model in regular and irregular waves. Time domain simulation with the wave equation and initial conditions from the model test, gives motion time series in good agreement with the measurements.
