Contributor Huijsmans, R.H.M. (mentor) Faculty Mechanical, Maritime and Materials Engineering Department Marine & Transport Technology Programme Offshore and Dredging Engineering Date 2015-09-25 Abstract Conventional computer programs based on radiation-diffraction theory are not able to predict the motions of a semi-submersible crane vessel in case the pontoons are only slightly submerged. Cause of the erroneous results are non-linearities like breaking waves on top of the pontoons and emergence of the pontoons itself. Objective of this thesis was to create a numerical model, capable of calculating these motions. A free flooding tank approach is used in order to capture the non-linear behaviour of a body. A significant improvement is found.
