EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF THE EFFECT OF BEAM VARIATION AND SHALLOW WATER ON THIN SHIP WAVE PREDICTIONS

A new method of correlating ship wave theory with experiment is described, and its application to a study of the effects of beam variation and shallow water using three mathematical hulls is examined. The analysis offers valuable insight into the interpretation and validity of thin ship wave calculations. Also the equivalent arrays determined from deep water experiments yielded reasonably accurate predictions of the corresponding wave resistance and wave spectra derived from experiments in shallow water.
