The numerical prediction of green water loads on super-structures is challenging due to the high number of required calculations to identify the critical operational conditions in the seaway which lead to overcoming seawater on deck. Further, the simulation of the non-linear behaviour of water on the deck and the prediction of impact loads require high computational effort. This paper presents an efficient three-step approach to simulate green water loads. The application of the developed procedure will be demonstrated on a mega yacht geometry.
