Investigations into Hydroelasticity theory commenced in the 1970s. It has since been employed to predict the responses of a wide range of marine structures, namely ships, offshore structures, VLFS and aquaculture structures. A dedicated conference on Hydroelasticity in Marine Technology takes place once every three years, with the next one at Southampton, in 2009. These are indications that hydroelasticity is an established method. The aims of this keynote paper are to illustrate some of the applications of hydroelasticity theory to ships, with particular reference to recent and ongoing developments and, particularly, on the effects of nonlinearities and viscous flows, and discuss possible future developments.
