ROLL STABILIZATION BY RUDDER
The possible use of rudders to stabilise a frigate is discussed in conjunction with a companion paper by J B Carley of the Admiralty Engineering Laboratory. The rudder will be expected to amplify the rolling motions at the high and low frequencies and this makes it ineffective in following seas at high speeds. It is concluded that the rudder stabiliser will not be as effective as a good fin stabiliser but is probably preferable to a passive damping tank. A mathematical model describing the motion response to the rudders is described.
