A numerical model to simulate the motion of a lifesaving module during its launching from the ship’s stern ramp
The article presents a numerical model of object motion in six degrees of freedom (DoF) which is intended to be used to simulate 3D motion of a lifesaving module during its launching from a ship using a stern ramp in rough sea. The model, of relatively high complexity, takes into account both the motion of the ship on water in changing sea conditions, and the relative motion of the ramp with respect to the ship. The motion of the ramp changes and strongly depends on its constructional and geometrical parameters. The presented model takes into account the displacement of the submerged part of the ramp, as well as its damping in the water and the interaction with the module moving on it. The results of test simulation of a module launching from the ship in still water are included.
