Article
The convergence of the continuous Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) solution to the advection–diffusion equation is established in this paper. As a by-product of this result, the convergence of the SPH heat equation is also established. The most prevalent SPH approximations to diffusion operators are considered. The convergence is demonstrated...

This paper describes the results of an experimental campaign aimed at the determination of heave hydrody-namic coefficients for a column of a floating wind turbine platform, equipped with a solid heave plate. The tests are carried out with an experimental system that allows performing both heave forced oscillation tests and heave decay tests. A spe...
Experiment Findings

The most salient result in this paper is that, when setting additional viscous damping due to heave plates for your potential flow simulations, choosing a representative KC is far more important than innacuracies due to eventual scale effects.

Conference Paper
Motion based wave inference allows the estimation of the directional sea spectrum from the measured motions of a vessel. Solving the resulting inverse problem is challenging as it is often ill-posed; as a matter of fact, statistical errors of the estimated platform response functions (RAOs) may lead to misleading estimations of the sea states as ma...

The resultin...

In situations where liquids need to be carried at cryogenic temperatures, evaporation and condensation effects acquire a major importance. Moreover, when sloshing occurs, large pressure variations are induced and influence rates of evaporation or condensation. Thermal conditions then play a crucial role when determining tank pressures. Several SPH...

Conference Paper
Ships at sea almost invariably carry liquids onboard, and liquids are contained in appropriate tanks. Being able to take into account the effects of liquids onboard when predicting ship motions is, therefore, of utmost importance for the safe operation of a vessel. In certain conditions, such predictions also require taking into account nonlinearit...
