Description/Abstract

This paper presents a summary of an investigation into the effects of hull flexibility when deriving an equivalent service factor for a GLBC. The long term wave induced bending moment predicted using traditional 3D rigid body hydrodynamic methods is increased for the effects of springing and whipping, based on 2D hydroelasticity predictions. The analysis results were correlated with full scale measurements that are available for this ship.
