Shallowflow: A program to model ship hydrodynamics in shallow water
MetadataShow full item record
Copyright © 2014 by ASME. In this article we present details of "ShallowFlow", a computer program to model the hydrodynamic flow around ships in calm shallow water. The program is based on slender-body shallow-water theory. Outputs from the program include far-field hydrodynamic pressure and flow velocities; free surface drawdown; sinkage and trim. Varying transverse bathymetry including open water, dredged channels, and canals of arbitrary cross-section may be modelled. The method is best suited to displacement ships, including cargo ships, ferries, cruise ships, warships and superyachts.

Gourlay, Tim (2013)The problem of predicting ship squat in non-uniform water depth is studied in this paper. For transverse depth variations, calculations are done using slender-body shallow-water theory, as implemented in the code ...
Gourlay, Tim (2009)A theoretical method is used to predict the sinkage and trim of two moving ships as they pass each other, either from opposite directions, or as one ship overtaking the other. The description is simplified to open water ...
