A LINEAR ANALYSIS OF PLANAR MOTION MECHANISM DATA

A linear analysis of ship motions (for example, of directional stability and control) does not require that slow-motion derivatives be employed to represent fluid forces and moments. Indeed the notion of such a representation implies the use of a Taylor series in circumstances where it is not strictly tenable. For linearity, it is only necessary that the principle of superposition be employed. Experimental data show that, when used in this sense, the assumption of linearity is by no means unreasonable.
