HULL FORM DEVELOPMENT AND RESISTANCE AND PROPULSION TEST RESULTS OF A SERIES OF SHIP HULLS HAVING EXTREME "V" SECTIONS

Hull forms were tested in an exploration of the effects of "V" forms on resistance, propulsion, and stability within and beyond the limits of design currently in practice in the United States. The sectional curves of the Series parent forms were retained along with the parent profiles within practical limits. Models were built and tested for both EHP and SHP. The geometric properties of the UM propeller models are listed in tables and compared with those of the parent propeller models, and additional tables list the particulars of the ship models. The differences in SHP and other propulsion components between the "U" form and the "V" form for the finer hulls seem excessive and are thought to reflect some scale effects not understood. Therefore the report is not considered a final statement of accurate results for at least the finer hulls, and further investigation is warranted.
