Modelling of green water ingress into holds of an open-top containership in its preliminary design phase

In this paper a method is presented of modelling the green water ingress into holds of open-top containership, which can be useful in the preliminary ship design phase. As a result of the research a mathematical formula which makes it possible to determine a minimum freeboard height with a view of as- low- as- possible occurrence rate of green water ingress into holds at given ship design parameters, was obtained. The research was carried out under assumption of constant ship hull dimensions. The design formula was elaborated by using a method based on a goal-oriented conceptual approach to formulation of design criteria, proposed by IMO. On the basis of the concept a deterministic scenario describing operational conditions of the ship in question, was assumed, and for the conditions the research was performed.
