HYDRODYNAMICS OF HIGH SPEED SHIPS. PART 1: SMOOTH WATER RESISTANCE

The development of a hull form for the purposes of determining smooth water resistance of high speed ships is presented. The investigation consisted of studies of existing high speed vessels, determination of the range of variables to be covered, development of a parent form, and construction and testing of eight models covering the selected range of variables. The appendix contains resistant test conditions and procedures, results and expanded data.
