Open Access research that is exploring the innovative potential of sustainable design solutions in architecture and urban planning...

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

Abstract

3-D Rankine source method is used to investigate the hydrodynamic interactions between two ships arranged side by side with or without forward speed. A new radiation condition, which takes Doppler shift into account, is imposed on the control surface. The present method was validated through two pairs of models both in beam and head waves. Model 1 is about a modified Wigley hull and a rectangular box model at beam sea condition without speed and Model 2 is about a full scale supply ship and frigate model at head seam condition with forward speed. The method developed was validated through model experiments as well as the published numerical programs and a good agreement was obtained.
