ON STATISTICAL TECHNIQUES FOR PREDICTING THE EXTREME DIMENSIONS OF OCEAN WAVES AND OF AMPLITUDES OF SHIP RESPONSES

The usefulness is discussed of available statistical techniques for predicting the probable short-term maximum, or peak, dimensions of ocean waves and oscillatory ship responses as well as their probable long-term maximum, or extreme, values. The scope of the exposition includes expected values and dispersion about such values and applies to the treatment of light, moderate and heavy seaways and to ships modeled as linear, quasi-linear and nonlinear systsms. At the present, only the combination of linear ships in light seas has been developed to the point that it can be usefully employed in design.
