Abstract:Long period ship movements can be a problem to port operators. Due to resonance and small hydrodynamic damping, horizontal excursions can be large with a consequent risk of mooring lines breaking, or of cargo handling being hindered. This report describes a mathematical model of long period and steady drift forces on ships in shallow water developed by Hydraulics Research and called DRIFTKEEL.
