RESEARCH PROGRAM IN THE SEAKEEPING QUALITIES OF SHIPS
The research program as presented describes various projects or project areas under categories of understanding the seaway, ship motions in a seaway, structural loadings in a seaway, propulsive effects in a seaway, criteria for seakeepability and generation of design data and methods. The nature of the various projects indicates the dependence and interplay between these categories in both the development within each category and in the attainment of short-range and long-range goals of the research program. It is advisable and recommended that research work be initiated in all of the categories at an early stage of the program and that efforts in each category continue throughout the program. In each area of effort, it is expected that different levels of success will be attained and the results rendered useful at different times. With the interdependence of various projects, and indeed because this is a long-range research (and not a production) program, very detailed project descriptions and time estimates were avoided.
