AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF HULL FORMS FOR THE NEW JAPANESE ANTARCTIC OBSERVATION SHIP

The Japanese Government is building the nation's second Antarctic observation ship which will succeed the Fuji. The new vessel is to be a 30,000-shp, triple-screw polar icebreaker and will be twice as powerful as her predecessor. This paper describes the results of the experimental study of hull forms for both icebreaking capability, conducted at HSVA, and open-water propulsive performance, conducted at the NKK Tsu Ship Model Basin.
