SOME RESULTS CONCERNING THE WAVEMAKING OF A THIN SHIP

The wavemaking resistance and free-wave spectrum of a simple ship having parabolic waterlines and rectangular frames (length/breadth = 20, draft/breadth = 3) were calculated by first-order thin-ship theory (Michells theory) and compared with experiment. There is fair agreement between theory and experiment in the range of Froude numbers investigated (Fn = 0.2 to 1.0), except for a discrepancy in the phases of the free waves which increases with decreasing Froude numbers.
