In order to validate the numerical prediction of two-ship interactions in waves, the model test calibration has to be conducted. However, motion constraints are usually applied when model tests are carried out for the measurement of wave excitation forces and moments in certain selected motion modes for both ships. Therefore, in current paper, a numerical seakeeping simulation of the model test conditions has been studied. Restraints in surge, sway and yaw, as well as the free motion modes in heave, roll and pitch have been all applied to both the ships, experimentally and numerically. The restraint forces and the unrestrained motions have been compared with the model test results and numerical simulation results. Fairly good agreements have been found.
