Time domain simulation of coupled sloshing-seakeeping problems by SPH-FEM coupling
Rights accessOpen Access
The aim of this work is to carry out numerical simulations in the time domain of seakeeping problems taking into account internal flow in tanks, including sloshing. To this aim, a Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) solver for simulating internal flows in tanks is coupled in the time domain to a Finite Element Method (FEM) diffraction–radiation solver developed for seakeeping problems. Validations are carried out comparing against available experimental data. Good agreement between obtained numerical results and experimental data is found.
