  1. Springing

    Springing as a nautical term refers to global vertical resonant hull girder vibration due to oscillating wave loads along the hull of the ship. The hydrodynamic theory of springing is not yet fully understood due to the complex description of the surface waves and structure interaction. It is, however, well known that larger ships with longer resonant periods are more exposed to this type of vibration. Examples of this include very large crude carriers and bulk carriers, but possibly also container vessels. The container ships are more slender, has higher service speeds and have more pronounced bow flare. These are also known to get significant whipping vibrations from bow impacts. Whipping may also occur on blunt ships especially in the cases of flat bottom impacts in the bow area. The bottom part of the bow however rarely exits from the water on such ships. In the extreme cases it may cause severe fatigue cracking of critical structural details, especially in moderate to rough head seas with low peak periods. Vibration in ballast condition is normally more easily excited by waves than cargo condition. The trade may also matter, since some ships experience more head wind and waves in ballast conditions, while other ships may experience more head wind and waves in cargo condition, thereby vibrating less overall.
