With the increase of human activities in offshore areas in order to colonize the ocean mostly for space, food and energy; the study of multiple side by side structures in waves is becoming increasingly important. This study focuses on a multi-body wave interactions problem where a fully submerged cylindrical body coupled with a nearby floating barge is numerically simulated using fully nonlinear approach. The main purpose of this study is to provide a deep insight into the influence of the floating barge on the submerged body, from which a possible shielding effect can be identified. Extensive parametric studies are performed to understand the hydrodynamic characteristics of individual structures under various environmental conditions. Comparative conclusions are drawn to summaries the key findings.
