Paper title:  Asymmetrical Water Impact Of Two-Dimensional Wedges With Roll Angle With Multi-Material Eulerian



S Wang and C Guedes Soares. Centre for Marine Technology and Engineering (CENTEC), Instituto Superior Técnico, Universidade de Lisboa, Portugal


A hydrodynamic study on the asymmetrical water impact of two-dimensional wedges with roll angle is presented. The slam induced loads on the wedges entering calm water with both vertical and horizontal velocities are predicted based on the explicit finite element method. The effects of the horizontal impact velocity and the roll angle are investigated through the predicted results of pressure distribution, pressure variation during the water entry and total impact force, which are also compared with analytical formulations and other numerical calculations. The present method gives reasonable predictions, compared to the numerical and analytical results.
