Abstract

This paper presents research towards the development of an analysis technique for predicting the interaction of large ocean waves with ships and offshore structures specifically with respect to the extent of deck submersion, impact loads and the level of structural damage caused. The coupled SPH - Finite Element approach is used, where the water is modeled with SPH and the structure with shell or continuum finite elements. Details of the approach are presented, including the SPH-FE contact and the fluid boundary conditions. Simulation results show that the method can correctly represent the behavior of a floating structure and the structural response to water impact.
