Abstract

Load prediction due to green water on deck mounted equipment for floating bodies B. Hamoudi & K.S. Varyani Hydrodynamics Laboratory of Naval Architecture and Ocean Engineering, Glasgow University, Acre Road, Glasgow, G20 OTL, UK ABSTRACT This paper presents a new method to predict the load in the longitudinal direction on a vertical superstructure or deck mounted equipment due to green water shipped on deck of floating bodies (ship, platforms) with or without forward speed during the operation time. The study consists of theoretical and experimental analysis along with some assumptions to simplify the problem which is highly non-linear. Theoretically, the load in the longitudinal direction is assumed to be a function of the wave velocity, the distance of the vertical wall (superstructure) from where the water is shipped and forward speed. Experimentally, the applied load in the longitudinal direction is measured using plates mounted on load cells on the deck, where
