COMPARISON BETWEEN CALCULATED AND MEASURED RESULTS OF TURBULENT BOUNDARY LAYERS AROUND SHIP MODELS

In this study, an attempt was made to improve the conventional method of calculation, taking into account the pressure variation across the thick boundary layer at the stern of conventional ships. The conventional integral method of calculation was modified by adding the terms arising from the longitudinal curvature effect. Then, the results of calculations were compared with those of measurements on the ship models of Wigley's form, a cargo ship and a tanker. Also, the accuracy and the applicability of the boundary layer calculation are discussed.
