Abstract

A coupled finite element (FEM) and boundary element (BEM) method is developed to analyse the nonlinear interaction between bodies and water waves. The former is used away from the body while the latter is used in a region near body. The combination is based on consideration of the efficiency of FEM and BEM in computation and mesh generation, respectively. Results for wave/body interactions are obtained by using auxiliary functions to decouple the mutual dependence of the body acceleration and the wave force. © 2002 Elsevier Science Ltd.
