Abstract

An eigenfunction expansion-matching method is extended to the analysis of the wave-induced responses of an elastic floating plate using modal expansions of the structural motion. The plate is considered as a strip and assumptions of potential flow, wave linearity and small structural deformation are employed. Wave-induced responses such as the displacement, bending moment and shear force of the structure can be obtained with a few computations using this method. A comparison of the solutions based on this method with experimental results has shown good agreement.
