Rolling of Biased Ships in Quartering Seas N. Sanchez (University of Texas at San Antonio, USA) A. Nayfeh (Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, USA) ABSTRACT The equation governing the nonlinear rolling of a biased ship in quartering seas can be reduced to a nonlinear orclinary-differential equation with parametric and external 'excitations. The solutions of this equation are analyzed by performing analog-computer simulations to locate bifurcation points in a two-climensional parameter space consisting of the waveslope and encounter frequency. The predicted instabilities for various levels of the parametric excitation are summarized in bifurcation diagrams that display the Stable regions and the instabilities that take the ship into "dangeroust'responses. INTRODUCTION I n the study of the roll motion of a vessel it is common to have an equation of motto', with time-varying coefficients, which arise from time-dependent restoring moments dire to the ship's position on the wave (7,2) or to changes in the displacement volume resulting from coupling with other modes (3). These time-varying coefficients constitute what is known as parametric excitations (4). A considerable number of roll studies (e.y., 1-3, S-10) analyzed the i'~fluenc.e of these excitations on the stability of a ship in the presence of resonances, which can lead to capsizing under rather mild sea conditions (9,1 a). In pre\/iot~s work (9,10), we applied an analytical-nt~merical procedure to characterize the stability of the steacly-state response of a ship when a parameter is slowly varied. Using this procedure, we analyzed the stability of an approximate analytical solution by using Floquet theory and elementary concepts of bifurcation theory. In (10), we have shown that a ship model under a purely parametric excitation, which is the case of rolling in longitudinal \vaves in the absence of heeling moments and pitch-roll coupling, displays self-similar behavior near the resonances. Instabilities can lead to capsizing through two scenario`,: one evolving from a large oscilla1 ion through the disappearance of a chaotic attractor (crises) and a second' potentially more OCR for page 133
an explicit time dependence, which might come from two sources (2): the position of the ship on the wave or variations in the displacement volume due to heave coupling. Win are mostly interested in the latter effect; however, consideration of the first effect only changes the nu merical values of the coefficients. The righting-moment function is approximates! as (5,12) K(0, t) = too td + a393 + a565 + he cost (2) where coo is the linear undamped natural frequency of the ship, the odd polynomial fits the ship's righting moment curve, and the parametric term represents heave - roll coupling expressed by the coefficient K`'zaz h= 2(oo Here, Koz is the magnitude of the coupling coefficient and az is the amplitude of the heaving motion, which is assumed to be harmonic with frequency S2.

The third attractor represented in the bifurcation diagram in Figure 1 is the subharmonic response near Q = 2, which is stable in the region between P4 and J2. Figure 4 shows selected attractors in this region: (a) shows the period-one response, (b) shows the subharmonic resonant response obtained after crossing P4 from right to left, (c) and (d) show quantitative changes in the subharmonic response, (e) shows the subharmonic response after a period-doubling bifurcation across P2, and (f) shows a chaotic attractor to the right of J2 Figure 5 shows the bifurcation diagram obtained from an analog-computer simulation of (5) when the parameters are set at V = 0, 49s= 1- 6, and h = 0.3. In this case the dotted region is much larger than that for the case of an unbiased ship. The region of stability of the subharmonic response shrank and the period-one and subharmonic responses only coexist in a narrow region between Q = 1.5 and 2.0. The curves S. and S2 represent saddle-node bifurcations of the large and small attractors of the period-one resonant response, which produce jumps in the corresponding attractors. Figure 6 shows the two attractors for Q - 0.768 and 0Cm= 0.217. In Figure 5, S. represents a jump from the large to the small attractor; S2 represents a jump in the small attractor, which takes the system to the large attractor if am is below tire black dot or to capsize if it is above this point; and P.' represents period-doubling bifurcations, leading to either chaos in the portion of the curve enclosed by E' or directly to an instability in the rest of the curve. The instability results in either capsize when on, is above the black dot on P. or a jump to the subharmonic attractor when it is below P.. Figure 7 shouts the coexisting attractors of the period-one and subharmonic responses at Q -- 1.758 and 0Cm = 0.046 . The curve E, in Figure 5 represents the point of capsize. For values of Q below the black dot on E', a period-doubling sequence to chaos such as the one shown in Figure 8 is observed. For crossings of E, between the black dot and the point of merge with P., a saddle-node bifurcation is observed, making the period-2T solution unstable and capsizing takes place. Figure 5 also shows that the stability region of the subharmonic response is narrower than that in Figure 1. Crossing P3 from right to left causes the period-one response to lose stability and the subharmonic becomes stable. When P2 is crossed, the system undergoes a sequence of period-doubling bifurcations leading tie chaos, which disappears when E' is rear bed, causing the ship to capsize. Figure 9 shows selected phase portraits of the above changes in the solution: (a) shows the period-one response, (b) and (c) show the subharmonic response after crossing P3, (d) shows a period-doubling in the subharmonic after crossing P2, and (e) shows a second period doubling in the subharmonic response. Figure 10 shows the bifurcation diagram obtained from an analog-computer simulation of (5) when the parameters are set equal to: y -- 0, As--- 6, and h = 0.3. Figure 11 shows the attractors of the primary resonance. Across curve S in Figure 10, the small attractor undergoes a saddle-node bifurcation that produces capsizing. Across P.' the large attractor undergoes period-doubling bifurcations. In the portion of P. enclosed by E' a sequence of period-doubling bifurcations culminating in chaos is observed, in the rest of the curve capsizing occurs after the first period-doubling bifurcation. The large attractor also undergoes period-doubling bifurcations across P4. The subharmonic response undergoes period-doubling bifurcations across P2 and P3. Capsizing is observed after crossing P.; and E2. Figure 12 shows the coexisting attractors that are found between P2 and P4. CONCLUSIONS The present resmelts show that the rlyna'~irs of a positively biased ship is different from that of a negatively biased sl~ip, which confirms the experimental observations of Wright and l'/larshfield (12). However, it is difficult to conclude which of the two cases is more stable because the stability depends on the region of the parameter space tinder consideration. Nevertheless, it is clear that the motion is very sensitive to bias and the region where capsizing is observed grows considerably and appear to be bigger for positively biased ships. VVe have also found the bifurcation diagram to be sensitive to changes in the phase angle y. The most interesting feature is the major qualitative changes that the bifurcation diagrams undergo as the bias angle changes. This clearly suggests the need for a complete analysis before a particular design can be considered safe to operate.

DISCUSSION Alberto Francescutto University of Trieste, Italy First, I would congratulate the authors for this very interesting paper indicating the possibility of new terrible possibilities in the already complicated behaviour of a ship in longitudinal or quartering seas. The author, in his presentation, mentions the possibility of jumps, involving the oscillation amplitude, taking place sharply in time. In my experience, this sharpness indicates always a few cycles of the oscillation. Would the author comment on this point? Finally, it seems that the consideration of the angle between the wave train and ship's heading has been neglected in the construction of the equation of motion (5). This, in fact, would include an explicit external excitation also in the limiting case of pure longitudinal sea. AUTHORS' REPLY Dr. Francescutto's first question has to do with the time it takes an unstable solution to grow from a given initial position to the point of capsize. The process may involve a fraction of a cycle to many cycles of oscillation, depending on the initial conditions and the scenario through which the vessel capsizes. In the case of capsize through saddle-node bifurcations, the capsize time may be very short. On the other hand, in the case of capsize through period-doubling bifurcations and chaos, the capsize time may be very long. In reference to the consideration of the angle between the wavetrain and the ship's longitudinal axis, we agree that it is not explicitly shown in equation (5). However, the governing equation is general and can treat arbitrary orientations by properly adjusting the excitation parameters in equation (10). DISCUSSION Hongbo Xu Massachusetts Institute of Technology, USA (China) You have shown that the nonlinear analysis is a very useful tool of studying the ship motion. When this one-degree freedom system (rolling of a ship in quartering seas) bifurcates, the magnitude of the ship motion undergoes a jump. There must be energy exchanges between the ship and waves or energy transfer between the potential component and kinetic component. I think it is important to identify the energy-sharing mechanism in order to understand the dynamics of the system. Perhaps you also have this kind of results to show us? AUTHORS' REPLY Dr. Xu's question addresses the energy transfer mechanism between the wave and boa, as well as the exchange between the potential and kinetic energies. Understanding of these fundamental mechanisms is of primary importance as Dr. Xu points out. The basic mechanism is the adjustment of the phasing between the vessel motion and the wave. DISCUSSION Hang S. Choi Seoul National University, Korea The equation you have used seems very complicated; cuffing oscillator for righting moment and Van der Pot oscillator for damping. In addition to these, the biased initial position is introduced as a control parameter. However, the resulting motion of this complex system depends strongly on the initial condition of the motion. Would you comment how the initial condition can be determined in your mathematical model? AUTHORS' REPI~Y Dr. Choi's question addresses an important aspect of the mathematical model. The solution to the differential equation governing the oscillation of the vessel depends on the initial conditions in the form of position and velocity. Furthermore, there might be many possible solutions to the differential equation, depending on the initial conditions. This is exactly the essence of the basin of attraction shown in the paper. Each set of initial conditions, as an independent variable, is located on the phase plane and the solution reached from that point is determined. Therefore, the motion is strongly dependent on the initial conditions. In summary, the initial conditions are independent variables which must be specified for the particular situation. To assess the stability of the vessel, we have to determine the solution for any physically meaningful set of initial conditions in phase space. This generates the domain of attraction of all possible solutions. From this information, we need to determine which solutions pose risk and use the analysis to evaluate the seaworthiness of the vessel under consideration. 140
