In the initial design process of ships, the examination of propulsive performance is very important in improving the hull form and propeller and in accurate prediction of performance. Since 1966, the IHI ship model basin has been conducting experiments for about 600 model ships and 300 model propellers, and IHI produced about 400 ships over the past decade. Tank test and trial data have been accumulated and utilized for the aforementioned purpose. On the other hand, according to recent developments in naval hydrodynamics, experimental technique and the computer, theoretical calculation programs have been furnished and laboratory automation process has made progress for the purpose of efficient model basin work. The present work deals with the total computer system which serves timely the beneficial information of ship propulsive performance for initial design use. The total system is composed of a network of soft programs surrounding the data bank which consists of tank test data, sea trial data and the results of theoretical calculation.
