Abstract:

The objective of this study was to determine the effect of various wave conditions on Dynamic Hull Girder Loadings, providing a complete documentation of the assumptions required for these analyses. By varying the wave data base, i.e. wave height statistics and wave spectural shape, as the basis for predicting the short term trends and long team responses of several different hull forms, the effect of such a variation on design requirements derived through this process can be gauged. The resulting comparison of long term responses will determine the significance of the wave data used.
