This bulletin contains an index of methodical ship model series resistance tests conducted since 1877 involving some variations of different hull proportions and form parameters. It thus could provide useful data for ship designers to estimate resistance and propulsion characteristics for a particular hull design. In addition to the index, a separate sheet is presented for each test covering the type of ship used, source and original publication, range of principal dimensions and proportions with speed investigated; the method of presentation of resistance results; skin friction basis; model size; any propulsion experiments conducted and other pertinent comments concerning the tests.
