MANEUVERING PERFORMANCE OF HIGH SPEED SHIPS AND CATAMARANS

Dynamic course stability and turning performance of two naval ships, the DL-2 hull form and the ASR catamaran, are examined utilizing the Rotating-Arm Facility combined with a computer analysis. Based on test results of the DL-2 hull form and previous hydrodynamic data of various ship configurations, a computational procedure is developed to evaluate maneuvering performance of high-speed ships at the design stage from major hull parameters. Correlations between predictions and test results indicate the procedure can be effectively used as a design tool.
