Abstract
A frequency-domain computer program WAVELOAD based on the three-dimensional panel-method has been developed to predict ship motions, wave loads, and hydrodynamic pressures. Numerical validation was carried out using the data from model tests of a destroyer and an ore carrier. The total factor error (TFE) was used as an index of correlation of predicted and measured transfer functions. The TFE analysis was also applied to the prediction by other computer programs, PRECAL and SHIPMO7. The results have shown that WAVELOAD is a reliable software package for sea-load predictions.
