Numerical Calculation of Added Mass for Ship Dynamic Stability by High Order Panel Method
IMO Standards for ship maneuverability require prediction of ship’s maneuvering performance at the design stage. For this purpose, various methods such as those based on free running model tests, captive model tests or numerical simulation using mathematical models can be used. While this paper describes a numerical method for estimating ship’s dynamic stability by computing the linear sway and yaw added mass coefficients using a higher-order panel method based on Non-Uniform Rational B-Spline. Three dimensional forward-speed radiation problems are formulated and solved in frequency domain. The linear hydrodynamic coefficients are calculated and preliminary results are presented for a modified Wigley hull.
