    Planing Hull Longitudinal Motion Simulation

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Seif, Tayyebe (Author) ; Seif, Mohammad Saeed (Supervisor)
    Planing crafts in waves are characterized by large and violent vertical motion and acceleration. The hull structure is subjected to high impact loads and the crew experiences high transient vertical acceleration and in most cases the crew needs to lower speed in order to avoid damage to the hull.In recent years, interest on increasingly faster marine vehicles has remarkably grown. Typical planing monohulls are: patrol vessels, pilot boats, rescue vessels, coast guard vessels and small navy vessels. So the behavior of planing monohulls in waves has been a widely researched topic since more and more planing monohulls appeared.The accurate prediction of large amplitude ship motions in severe...

    , M.Sc. Thesis Sharif University of Technology Emami, Pedram (Author) ; Seif, Mohammad Saeed (Supervisor)
    In this thesis, the potential flow including unsteady partial cavitation around axisymmetric bodies are studied using a boundary element method (BEM) based on potential theory. For this purpose the wetted surface of the body and cavity surface are divided (approximated) to panels. Then, by applying the Green’s third identity and expressing this theory in potential flow around every surface, cavitation can be modeled by distributing the source and the dipole rings on cavity/body surface. In order to approaching this goal we introduced dipole rings distribution on the cavity and body surfaces and source rings distribution on the cavity surface.
