A strip theory approach is applied to obtain the dynamic responses of a flexible uniform barge, stationary in quartering regular waves. Five rigid body motions, excluding surge, and symmetric and antisymmetric distortions are accounted for. The requisite two-dimensional hydrodynamic coefficients are obtained using RANS and potential flow approaches, in order to
assess the influence of viscous effects on the dynamic response of this barge. In addition, as a continuation of the validation study, the influence of turbulence modelling on the hydrodynamic coefficients of a rectangular section is investigated and the concept of mesh refinement is quantified.
