This article deals with time-domain hydroelastic analysis of a marine structure. The convolution terms in the mathematical model are replaced by their alternative state-space representations whose parameters are obtained by using the realization theory. The mathematical model is validated by comparison to experimental results of a very flexible barge. Two types of time-domain simulations are performed: dynamic response of the initially inert structure to incident regular waves and transient response of the structure after it is released from a displaced condition in still water. The accuracy and the efficiency of the simulations based on the state-space model representations are compared to those that integrate the convolutions.
