Abstract:
We present some recent studies on fluid-structure interaction problems in the presence of free surface flow. We consider the dynamics of boats simulated as rigid bodies. Several hydrodynamic models are presented, ranging from full Reynolds Averaged Navier-Stokes equations down to reduced models based on potential flow theory.
