Description/Abstract

Recent losses of ships due to suspected rogue wave encounters highlight the need for the evaluation of the response of a travelling ship in rogue waves. Numerical wave tanks applying computational fluid dynamics techniques have been used previously to model rogue waves. Such techniques have, however, only been applied to the evaluation of ship responses in regular waves. This paper focuses on the development of a numerical wave tank to model rogue waves in order to evaluate the influence of rogue waves on a travelling ship compared to a typical irregular seaway. Validation of the numerical wave tank is carried out using experimental results with good agreement
