EXPERIMENTAL PREDICTION OF SHIP PROPULSIVE PERFORMANCE

A ship model basin was completed in November 1977 at Nippon Kokan (NKK)'s Tsu Research Laboratories in Japan. In this basin, where the main and auxiliary towing carriages are installed, tests are carried out using a laboratory automation system. The method of predicting horse power at this basin is described and the results of tests conducted to determine the overall accuracy of the tank are discussed and compared with the results of tests in other towing tanks and official trials.
