Experimental and Numerical Investigation Into the Effects of Initial Conditions on a Three Degree of Freedom Capsize Model
The dynamics and hydrodynamics of ship capsizing include strong nonlinearities, transient effects, and physical phenomena that have not been fully identified or studied. This paper presents a study of some of the various mechanisms associated with this extreme behavior. A quasi-nonlinear three degree of freedom numerical model is employed to examine the effects of initial conditions on the ultimate state of a box barge model. The numerical results are then used to provide structure and understanding to otherwise seemingly inconsistent and ambiguous experiments.

More about this publication?
- The Journal of Ship Research is a quarterly publication providing highly technical papers on applied research in hydrodynamics, propulsion, ship motions, structures, and vibrations. While the Journal requires that papers present the results of research that advances ship and ocean science and engineering, most contributions bear directly on other disciplines, such as civil and mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, and numerical analysis. High quality papers are contributed from the U.S., Canada and overseas, with representation from established authorities as well as new researchers.
