A numerical simulation system has been developed for safety evaluation of berthing and side-by-side transfer offshore operations between two vessels. Water-tank experiment has been conducted on behaviors of connected two vessels in waves, providing accuracy of the system. Also behavior of two vessels during ship-to-ship transfer offshore operation of crude oil has been simulated by the present system to demonstrate usefulness of the system.
