Abstract

To increase the capabilities of the computer calculations a computer code for fully nonlinear potential calculations with water waves and floating bodies had been developed earlier. It uses a boundary integral equation formulation, which is discretized to give a higher order panel method. In the current thesis this computer code has been applied to diffraction calculations of regular waves of moderate steepness incident on fixed, surface piercing cylinders with circular and rectangular cross-sections.
