This paper describes a theoretical approach to predict roll damping for a three-dimensional barge shaped vessel in the frequency domain by matching a simple discrete vortex method (DVM), describing local separated flow, to an inviscid 3-D seakeeping code. The results are compared with model test experiments to demonstrate validity of the method. A good agreement between the model test RAO and the damped RAO is achieved.
