A COMPUTERIZED PROCEDURE FOR PREDICTION OF SEAKEEPING PERFORMANCE

A computerized procedure is presented for the calculation of the seakeeping characteristics of a given hull form or a Series 60 hull form. The program is written in Fortran 4 language for use on an IBM system 360-65. The program has the ability to calculate calm water resistance(Taylor Standard Series, or Series 60) and regular or random sea results. The seakeeping results can give motion, vertical velocities, accelerations at any point along the length of the ship, added resistance, and bending moments and shear forces at 21 stations. In addition, experimental results for motions and wave spectra can be read into the program for random sea calculations. A listing of the program and the required input data are presented in the appendices.(Author)
