This paper investigates wave loads of a flooded ship by model test. Model tests are performed in ocean engineering basin of MOERI (Maritime and Ocean Engineering Research Institute). Ship motions are measured by RODYM6D. Wave loads such as shear forces, bending moments and torsion moments are measured by ATI load cell mounted on segmented parts of the ship model. A 300 m-long barge ship with two flooded compartments is considered in model test. Responses of intact and flooded cases are compared. The test results are also compared with numerical analyses using boundary element method.
