In the present study, the added resistance of a containership in parametric roll motion is investigated. The numerical simulation is carried out using a three dimensional Rankine panel method along with the weakly nonlinear formulation. The added resistance is evaluated by a near-field method, namely, the direct integration of the 2nd-order pressure on a body surface. To calculate the component resulting from the large-amplitude roll motion, the higher-order restoring and Froude-Krylov forces on wetted hull surfaces are taken into account. With or without parametric roll in regular waves, the components of added resistance classified with respect to integral terms are compared to figure out the important of each term. Through the investigation, the correlation between the added resistance and parametric roll is derived from coupling and decoupling the components of roll motion and vertical motions.
