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.

The prediction of wave-induced motions and loads is of great importance for the design of marine structures. Linear potential flow hydrodynamic models are already used in different parts of the ship design development and appraisal process. However, the industry demands for design innovation and the possibilities offered by modern technology imply the need to also understand the modelling assumptions and associated influences of nonlinear hydrodynamic actions on ship response. At first instance, this paper presents the taxonomy of different Fluid Structure Interaction (FSI) methods that may be used for the assessment of ship motions and loads. Consequently, it documents in a practical way the effects of weakly nonlinear hydrodynamics on the symmetric wave-induced responses for a 10,000TEU Container ship. It is shown that the weakly nonlinear FSI models may be useful for the prediction of symmetric wave-induced loads and responses of such ship not only in way of amidships but also at the extremities of the hull. It is concluded that validation of hydrodynamic radiation and diffraction forces and their respective influence on ship response should be especially considered for those cases where the variations of the hull wetted surface in time may be noticeable.
