Investigation of dynamic characteristics of the flooding water of the damaged compartment of an ITTC RO-RO passenger ship

When a ship is damaged and flooded, the motion of the damaged ship is significantly influenced by the flooding water dynamics. The flooding water in the damaged ship has been treated as a lumped mass under the quasi-static assumption in most of previous researches. To calculate the motion of damaged ship rigorously, it is necessary to analyze the coupled dynamics of flooding water. In this study, a series of numerical and experimental studies is conducted for the damaged part of ITTC RO-RO passenger ship. FLOW3D is used for investigating the feasibility of the state of the art CFD technique. An applicability of the coupled motion analysis of damaged ships can be confirmed by agreement between the numerical results and the model experiments.
