Effect of Above-Waterline Hull Shape on Broaching-Induced Roll in Irregular Stern-Quartering Waves

In this paper, the effect of the above-waterline hull shape on broaching danger in irregular stern-quartering waves was numerically investigated using the US Office of Naval Research (ONR)-tumblehome and ONR-flare hulls. To indicate the danger of broaching, the probability of a broaching-induced large roll angle of the two vessels was examined along with the probability of broaching. The numerically estimated broaching-induced roll angles were compared with the time histories of the free-running model experiments. Then, the effects of above-waterline hull shape on broaching danger in the North Atlantic were simulated for various speeds, autopilot courses and rudder gains.
