View/Hide Left Panel

This paper presents one of the most fundamental aspects of the problems associated with the wave-excited ship motion. In the process of validating analytical methods, it is very important to check how accurately we are predicting the individual components of waves generated by a ship moving in waves. In this regard, this paper shows the proper direction in which we have to focus our investigations.

I would like to suggest that we should validate our panel codes by comparing with the results presented in this paper for each component of waves generated by a ship, i.e., the waves generated by the forward translation, diffracted waves, and radiated waves. We may then be able to find out where the deficiencies are with our panel codes.
