TURNING CHARACTERISTICS OF THE BELL 100 TON SURFACE EFFECT SHIP

The turning characteristics of the Bell 100 ton captured Air Bubble Surface Effect Ship (CAB/SES) are studied with the aid of the Oceanic Incorporated computer simulation. The craft's motions for straight runs, straight runs with waves and turning runs under calm water conditions, are compared with the final set of computer simulation turning maneuvers with waves involving changing speeds, wavelengths, wave amplitudes, and final rudder angles.
