Waves generated by passing ships have potential adverse impacts on the environment (beach erosion, ecological disturbance, structures damage) and other waterway users (navigations, moored ships) in the coastal and sheltered areas. But issues related to waves of ships were addressed rarely in China until now. Accurate prediction of wash waves is the first step to control the washes from passing ships and it’s significant to reduce the effects of washes. A coupled method is used in this paper to simulate the washes and its effects caused by the passing ship. A potential flow theory method is adopted as the stationary wave generation model; a non-hydrostatic wave flow model is used as the wave propagation model; a time domain method is chosen as the model for simulating the forces and moments of mooring ship. The waves calculated by a potential flow theory method in the near field are used as the input for the non-hydrostatic wave-flow model to obtain the far field waves. A time-domain representation of the wave-cut at the location of the passing vessel is transformed to the frequency-domain and is used as the input for the diffraction computations. Parts of the calculated results are validated experimentally, satisfactory agreement is demonstrated.
