September 10, 2015

On September 9, 0th amplitude of all variables in all conditions in Case2.10(KCS) and Case2.11(KCS) are modified (0th amplitude should be twice of mean value). However, in calm water condition, it seems more easy-to-understand to use mean value ( not 0th amplitude ) for CT, sinakge and trim. Hence, the modification for calm water condition is reverted back to the original values. Please refer new Excel files [Identifier]_6conditions_2-10_20150910.xlsx for Case 2.10 and [Identifier]_6conditions_2-11_20150910.xlsx for Case 2.11 .

September 9, 2015

  • Submission Instructions of Case2.10(KCS) are fixed, and files for "Sample+Tecplot layout file" are updated. We would like to ask the participants, who already submit their results, to submit again. We are sorry for causing so much trouble. Key changes are as follows.
    • In 2.10-1, values of 0th amplitude for CT, heave motion and pitch motion were not correct(The previous values were of \(\displaystyle{\frac{X_0}{2}}\), not \( X_0 \) in Equation(4) in Case2.10(KCS). ). They are corrected to values of \( X_0 \). [Identifier]_6conditions_2-10_20150909.xlsx is a new Excel file ( linked from Case2.10(KCS) ) containing corrected values.
    • Due to the above corrections, time histories for 2.10-2-C1∼5 in Case2.10(KCS) should be replotted. Case2.10-2.zip ( linked form Case2.10(KCS) ) is a new zipped archive containing corrected data and image files.
    • According to above replotting, ranges for some graphs of 2.10-2-C1 and 2.10-2-C2 should be changed. New values are described in a blue font in Case2.10(KCS).

  • Submission Instructions of Case2.11(KCS) are fixed, and Excel file for 2.11-1 ( [Identifier]_6conditions_2-11_20150909.xlsx ) is updated. Please use this new Excel file for submittion. Key changes are as follows.
    • In 2.11-1, values of 0th amplitude for CT, and all motions were not correct(The previous values were of \(\displaystyle{\frac{X_0}{2}}\), not \( X_0 \) in Equation(4) in Case2.11(KCS). ). They are corrected to values of \( X_0 \).
    The zipped archive for 2.11-2-C1∼5 is not changed, because it has no needs to be modified.

The main objective of the Workshop is to collect and assess the results from different computations for some well specified test cases. For this to be successful the number of computations for each case should be large, i.e. the number of test cases must be kept within reasonable limits. The Workshop Steering Group therefore decided to exclude some of the previously posted test cases, and to specify some “mandatory” cases. Thus for JBC the NMRI conditions and results (the only ones available at present) shall be used. As the results from TUHH and Osaka become available additional computations for these cases will be welcome. This will ascertain a large number of computed results for at least one of the conditions (NMRI). Anyone who wants to do KCS (seakeeping) should do the head seas condition before embarking on the oblique seas case. For ONRT similar conditions apply. See the List of test cases found under “Announcement”.
