During recent years a computational strategy has been developed at the Technical University of Denmark for numerical simulation of water wave problems based on the high-order nite-dierence method, ,. These methods exhibit a linear scaling of the computational eort as the number of grid points increases. This understanding is being applied to develop a tool for predicting the added resistance (drift force) of ships in ocean waves. We expect that the optimal scaling properties of this solver will allow us to make a convincing demonstration of convergence of the added resistance calculations based on both near-eld and far-eld methods. The solver has been written inside a C++ library known as Overture , which can be used to solve partial dierential equations on overlapping grids based on the high-order nite-dierence method. The resulting code is able to solve, in the time domain, the linearised potential ow forward-speed hydrodynamic problems; namely the steady, radiation and diraction problems. The near-eld formulation of the wave drift force has also been implemented, and development is under way to include far-eld methods. This paper presents validation results based on analytical solutions for exact geometries.
