Abstract

Very large floating rectangular caissons can be used in the construction of breakwaters, piers, or harbor terminals. It may need more than one day to tow these large floating caissons to construction sites. The responses of the floating caissons to ocean waves, wind and tidal currents are one of the concerns in practice. In this paper, we report our on-going work on physical and numerical modeling of a deep draft floating caissons in wave environments. The numerical results obtained by WAMIT and CFD (Star-CCM+) are compared with the experimental results.
