Advanced hydrodynamic analyses of floating LNG terminals are presented in the paper. They consist of the complex interaction of multiple bodies and the coupling effect of seakeeping (wave diffraction and radiation around bodies) and sloshing (liquid motions in tanks). Based on the recent development to introduce the dissipation in potential flows and new formulations of boundary element method, the seakeeping analysis is enhanced to be able to make accurate predictions of gap resonances and major dynamic effect of liquid motion in tanks.
