This work, presented in the OMAE-2002 Special Symposium in honor of John V. Wehausen, is dedicated to him, an admirable teacher, colleague, and scholar. A general open boundary condition for time-dependent wave-body interaction problems is developed. The technique is based on domain decomposition and a use of the unsteady free-surface Green function in an outer region. The boundary condition results in a shell condition which may be applied to a variety of interior solution methods. When the interior solution method is a boundary-integral method, an implicit matching can be done. When a volume-discretization method is used in the interior region, a newly developed explicit matching procedure is performed. Demonstrations of the transparent properties of this shell are made for several types of unsteady problems.
