Hydrodynamic forces acting on a circular cylinder oscillating in waves and a small current
- 268 Downloads
A complete theory to obtain semianalytical solutions of the wave drift damping for a circular cylinder freely oscillating in waves is developed. The wave drift damping can be significantly increased by heave and pitch motions. Effects of the draft of the cylinder and effects of the water depth are shown. The effective evaluation of the free-surface integral and the corner problem are also discussed, and the computed results of the far and near field formulations are compared. These semianalytical solutions may prove to be important in providing validation of results obtained by numerical techniques such as the higher-order boundary element method.
