VIBRATOR-GENERATOR TESTS ON NS SAVANNAH IN DEEP WATER
Vibration-generator tests were made on N.S. Savannah in deep water while the ship was powered by her emergency propulsion system. Resonant frequencies and mode shapes of the hull for vertical, horizontal, and torsional vibration were measured. A comparison of experimental and calculated results indicated that agreement is about as satisfying as that usually found for surface ships. Recommendations for further tests are made.
