IAHR, founded in 1935, is a worldwide independent member-based organisation of engineers and water specialists working in fields related to the hydro-environmental sciences and their practical application. Activities range from river and maritime hydraulics to water resources development and eco-hydraulics, through to ice engineering, hydroinformatics, and hydraulic machinery.

Predicting wave-induced loads on a moored ship with a non-hydrostatic waveflow model
Author : DIRK RIJNSDORP(1), MARCEL ZIJLEMA(2) & JULIE PIETRZAK(3)
ABSTRACT
An accurate prediction of the wave-induced motions of a ship that is moored in a harbor or coastal region is of vital
importance to ensure safe operations. The ultimate goal of this study is to develop a single numerical model tool to
predict the wave-induced response of a moored ship. For this purpose, the wave-resolving non-hydrostatic model
SWASH will be extended by nesting a floating body inside the numerical domain. In this work, we will validate the
method for the wave-scattering by a non-moving floating obstacle, and for the wave-induced loads on a restrained (i.e.,
non-moving) ship. This short paper presents some preliminary results of the study. Final results will be presented at the
IAHR congress.
