As part of the test campaign led by the 27th ITTC Ocean Engineering Committee to produce reliable experimental benchmark data for multiple-body interactions in waves, model tests of two identical models in close proximity were carried out at the towing tank of Memorial University, Canada and at the wave basin of Ecole Centrale de Nantes, France. This paper presents the experimental results for the two bodies in regular waves with various gaps. The experimental data, including motions of two bodies, wave elevations in the gap and drift forces, were compared with numerical solutions based on the potential-flow solution.
