The present paper focuses on modeling of green water loading on an oscillating body using CFD. The vessel motion is calculated a priory using time domain panel method code, then green water impact is computed based on that pre-calculated motion. The finite volume method is used to capture the green water impact, however in order to represent the free surface, volume of fluid method is used. A sophisticated dynamic mesh is used to handle the motion of the vessel in fluid domain. Several examples and case studies are considered to validate the present CFD model as well as to check the effect of global motion on green water loading such as effect of steepness and heading angle on green water impact. Results show that due to the motion, the impact loading phenomena changes significantly and there is a significant change in pressure on the deck after considering the motion effect and it deviates considerably with the results obtained from fixed vessel cases.
