This work focuses on the hydrodynamical problem of a Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) carrier near a Gravity Based Structure (GBS) -type offshore terminal subject to incoming waves in medium deep to shallow water conditions. The work is restricted to 2D, and the ship is restrained from moving. The resonant behavior of the fluid in the gap between the ship and the terminal is investigated. The problem is investigated by means of a numerical model and model tests. Potential theory is assumed, and a linear as well as a nonlinear time-domain numerical wavetank based on a boundary element method with a mixed Eulerian–Lagrangian approach is implemented for this purpose. Model tests (near 2D) of a midship section near a vertical wall are carried out in a long and wide wave flume in model scale 1:70. In full scale the ship beam is and the ship draft is . The ship model is constructed in such a way as to avoid flow separation, i.e., no sharp corners. Several parameters are varied: water depth, wave period, and wave steepness. Wave elevation is measured at 12 locations.
