Abstract:

ShipMo3D is an object-oriented library with associated user applications for predicting ship motions in calm water and in waves. This report serves as a user manual for creating ship models using ShipMo3D Version 3.0. A companion report serves as a user manual for predicting ship motions in the time and frequency domains. Version 3 of ShipMo3D introduces modeling of sloshing tanks and U-tube tanks. Several ShipMo3D applications are used for creating a ship. SM3DPanelHull creates a paneled representation of the wet and dry portions of the ship hull. SM3DRadDifcomputes radiation and diffraction forces acting on the wet hull using a boundary element method. SM3DPanelSloshTank creates a paneled representation of a sloshing tank, such as a tank containing liquid cargo or a roll stabilization tank. SM3DRadSloshTank computes sloshing forces arising from motions in the frequency domain. SM3DBuildShip creates a model of the ship that can be used for ship motion predictions in either the frequency domain or time domain.
