Abstract

This chapter presents an overview of some computational methods for analysis of ship hydrodynamics problems. Attention is focused on the description of a stabilized finite element formulation derived via a finite calculus procedure. Both arbitrary Lagrangian-Eulerian (ALE) and [...]

Abstract

A stabilized semi-implicit fractional step finite element method for solving coupled fluid-structure interaction problems involving free surface waves is presented. The stabilized equations are derived at a differential level via a finite element calculus procedure. A new mesh [...]

This paper presents part of the work done within the project ‘Advanced Numerical Simulation and Performance Evaluation of WAM-V ® in Spray Generating Conditions’ developed by the International Center for Numerical Methods in Engineering (CIMNE) under Navy Grant [...]

Abstract

A Wave Adaptive Modular Vessel (WAM-V®) is a new class of ship that uses inflatable flexible hulls to conform to the surface of the water. [...]

Abstract

A stabilized semi-implicit fractional step algorithm based on the finite element method for solving ship wave problems using unstructured meshes is presented. The stabilized gov-erning equations for the viscous incompressible fluid and the free surface are derived at a differential [...]

Abstract

We present a general formulation for incompressible fluid flow analysis using the finite element method (FEM). The necessary stabilization for dealing with convective effects and the incompressibility condition are introduced via the so called finite calculus (FIC) method. The [...]
