Care must be taken in model formulation to ensure that unwanted internal circulation cannot be induced. Extensive model testing must be carried out on possible distorted element shapes and configurations. Two-dimensional laterally averaged simulations are a very useful tool for preliminary and screening analysis. Many of the fundamental motion types can be examined using fast response desktop computers. Three dimensional analysis is possible using workstations. Boundary conditions at the open ocean are a continuing source of difficulty. It is rare that sufficient field data will be available to completely specify driving parameters.
