报告题目：Hydrodynamic Interactions of Multiple Bodies with Water Waves
报告人：Prof. Masashi Kashiwagi, Osaka University, Japan
报告简介：A hierarchical wave interaction theory is reviewed as an innovative idea for treating hydrodynamic interactions among a great number of bodies rigorously in the framework of linear potential theory. Experimental results are also introduced, which were obtained using a structure consisting of 64 truncated vertical circular cylinders arranged in a periodical array of 4 rows and 16 columns. From observation of measured results and their comparison with computed results, the effects of multiple-body interactions on the wave elevation and local steady forces are noted with respect to the wave frequency and the spatial position inside the structure. It is observed that the characteristics of wave interactions clearly change depending on whether the wave frequency is below or above the near trapped-mode frequency. Overall agreement between measured and computed results is very good, although slight differences attributed to viscous effects are observed.
