For the analysis of fluid-structure-interaction experiments with floating bod-
ies are typically carried out in wave channels.
Beside measurement equip-
ment and test objects experiments require free capacities of laboratory facil-
In order to reduce costs arid to allow the analysis of various different
test configurations, the application of reliable NWC's is indispensable.
paper presents the results of simulations carried out with a NWC.
two-dimensional boundary element approach uses cubic spline approxima-
tions for the free surface discretization and a double node concept for the
modeling of contact points between structures and fluid.
time-dependent nonlinear boundary conditions on the free surface are eval-
uated by a ...
