Dynamic Pressures on a Floating Horizontal Half Cylinder

March 21, 2017

Floating horizontal half cylinder is the next numerical example. Free surface hydrodynamics is calculated using the 3D direct integral formulation and Kelvin GF for water of infinite depth.

Main body dimensions read L = 50 m, B = 20 m, T = 10 m. Wetted surface of the half cylinder is meshed using 7500 panels. Only zero forward speed case is...
