AbstractA numerical method is described which simulates in the time domain the propagation of steep two dimensional periodic waves and the large motions induced by the waves on free floating bodies. The method allows for mild transient phenomena. In addition to several numerical results, computations of the sway forces and the roll and heave motions induced by steep periodic waves on a floating body restrained in the sway mode are presented and compared with the results of specially conducted model tests.
