Motion prediction of floating bodies in waves represents one of the most challenging problems in naval hydrodynamics. The solution of the seakeeping problem involves the study of complex non-linear wave-body interactions that require large computational costs. For this reason, over the years many seakeeping models have been formulated in order to predict ship motions using simplified flow theories, usually based on potential flow theories solved within the linear assumption.
