POTENTIAL IMPACT OF THE TWENTY YEAR HINDCAST WIND AND WAVE CLIMATOLOGY ON SHIP DESIGN
This paper highlights some features of the Navy's new Climatology which appear to extend the designer's capability to realistically assist ship performance. The Climatology provides global wave and wind parameter statistics, identifies the occurrence and persistence of some heavy weather conditions, and promises to permit a substantial upgrading of wave directionality and spectral shape models. Effects of these features are summarized in terms of predicted performance of several Naval combatants.
