One ofthe most important aspects ofan amphibious ship is the ability to safely and swiftly transport and transfer large numbers of troops and their associated equipment from sea to shore. Such transfers are usually conducted using landing craft, which are loaded using a flooded well dock at the stem ofthe ship.
Hence, the behaviour of landing craft within the flooded well dock is of critical importance to the operators of an amphibious ship.
This paper describes, and presents results from, an investigation into the effect ofthe design ofthe well dock on the
motions ofa landing craft when operating in a seaway.
