In simulation of 1st -order wave-induced motion of vessels it is sometimes necessary to express frequency-dependent added mass and damping in time-domain formulation. One way to do this is to transform the frequency dependence into retardation functions. During simulation these are convolved with the velocity history, which is time-consuming and impractical. To get a more efficient model a method for expressing the retardation function as a linear differential equation has been developed. The method calculates the coefficients of the differential equation from the damping function only, avoiding the uncertain added mass function.
