RESISTANCE AND PROPULSION TEST RESULTS ON TWO MODELS. 1. SERIES 60, C SUB B EQUAL 0.80. 2. HIGH SPEED CARGO SHIP PD 108-S5-0

This report presents the results of resistance and self-propulsion tests of two models carried out at the Ship Model Towing Tank from October to December, 1961, as an extension to two model tests previously performed under the sponsorship of the Maritime Administration. These earlier tests showed that good results could be obtained with a 14-foot (LBP) model size as compared to the 20-foot size normally used at David Taylor Model Basin. It was decided, however, to investigate further the correlation of results obtained with these two model sizes, specifically for a fuller model, such as Series 60, CB = 0.80. In addition, a finer model, the Maritime Administration design PD 108-S5-0, was tested so that correlation data for a complete range of block coefficients would be available. This model was tested at two draft conditions.
