Efficient numerical modelling of wave-structure interaction
Offshore structures are required to survive in extreme wave environments. Historically, the design of these offshore structures and vessels has relied on wave-tank experiments and linear theory. Today, with advances in computing power, it is becoming feasible to supplement these methods of analysis with fully nonlinear numerical simulation.
This thesis is concerned with the development of an efficient method to perform this numerical modelling, in the context of potential flow theor...Expand abstract
