A MODIFIED FROUDE METHOD FOR DETERMINING FULL-SCALE RESISTANCE OF SURFACE SHIPS FROM TOWED MODELS

The Froude method for extrapolating the resistance of towed ship models to full-scale equivalent flat-plate resistance. A form factor for extrapolation is to be determined from a boundary-layer calculation of a uniquely defined equivalent body of revolution. Examples of form factors calculated for the LUCY ASHTON and a hull with a block coefficient of 0.8 are shown to be quite satisfactory.
