    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


    A general linear body boundary condition of hydroelastic analysis of arbitrary shaped floating structures generalizes the classic kinematic rigid-body (Timman-Newman) boundary condition for seakeeping problems. The new boundary condition is consistent with the existing theories under certain assumptions. It may be used for the interaction analysis of floating defarmable structures with ideal or viscous fluids.
