THE MARINER MODEL CO-OPERATIVE TEST PROGRAM--CORRELATIONS AND APPLICATIONS

Encouraging correlations were shown in the comparison of rotating-data obtained in three facilities (i.e., NSRDC, AEW, and Stevens Institute). Furthermore, the new PMM data obtained at Skibsteknisk Laboratorium compared well with these rotating-arm data. The effectiveness of computer simulations based on the captive model test results were shown in good correlations with full-scale trial results and in the application of ship dynamic motion predictions under various boundary conditions. It should be noted, however, that encouraging results shown in this repeort are relative to the MARINER model, which has been the subject of extensive studies under the ITTC C0-operative Program in recent years. It is recommended to further develop a firm basis for realistic computer simulations on the basis of captive model test results for a wide range of ship configurations under various environmental conditions (e.g., in wind, waves, current, shallow water, and restricted channels).
