Abstract
This paper shows the recent work of the authors in the development of a time-domain FEM model for evaluation of a SES including skirt dynamics. In this work, a potential flow approach along with a stream-line integration of the free surface is used. The paper focuses on the fluid-structure algorithm that has been developed to allow the simulation of the complex and highly dynamic behavior of the seals in the interface between the air cushion, and the water. The algorithm is based, on one side, o...
