THE EFFECT OF SURFACE PREPARATION AND REPAINTING PROCEDURES ON THE FRICTIONAL RESISTANCE OF OLD SHIP BOTTOM PLATES AS PREDICTED FROM NSRDC FRICTION PLANE MODEL 4125

The Naval Ship Research and Development Center Utilized a friction plane (NSRDC Model 4125) to estimate the differences in frictional resistance of two types of antifouling paints and of old ship bottom plates in three surface conditions. Photographs and roughness measurements are included for each surface investigated together with experimental data expressed as values of roughness allowance coefficient versus Reynolds number.
