The paper presents methodology for calculation of vertical wave bending moments on oil tankers in the Adriatic Sea. Since the numerical hydrodynamic methods are rather time consuming, recently developed and validated semi-analytical approach for calculation of transfer functions is adopted. Short- and long-term predictions of extreme vertical wave bending moments are performed using T-spectrum and wave data collected by Tabain [2] and Leder [3]. The results are finally compared to the IACS rule… CONTINUE READING
