This paper compares numerical and experimental results in the study of the resonance phenomenon which appears between two side-by-side fixed barges for different sea-states.

Simulations were performed using SWENSE (Spectral Wave Explicit Navier-Stokes Equations) approach and results are compared with experimental data on two fixed barges with different headings and bilges.

Numerical results, obtained using the SWENSE approach, are able to predict both the frequency and the magnitude of the RAO functions.
