A new method for the prediction of non-linear relative wave motions
The problem of green water on the bow decks of floating offshore production units in large survival waves is an important design t problem. An accurate description of the relative wave motions around the bow is important for the prediction of green water on the deck. In the paper a new method is presented to predict these relative wave motions, which are highly non-linear. Input for the method is the calculation of the relative wave motions in front of the bow with linear (3D) diffraction theory.
