PREDICTING HYDRODYNAMIC BEHAVIOR OF SMALL WATERPLANE AREA, TWIN HULL SHIPS
Existing naval and commercial Small Waterplane Area, Twin-Hull (SWATH) vessels are described along with the reasons for choosing this type of hull configuration. The effects of changes in hull form and proportions on smooth water resistance and motions in rough water are examined. Analytical and experimental techniques presently available for use in the design process are discussed. Simple relationships for use in predicting resistance and seakeeping behavior in early stages of design are presented.
