A description of the 'NSRDC Ship-Motion and Sea-Load Computer Program' is presented. This program computes the six-degree-of-freedom ship motions, wave-induced loads and pressure distribution for a ship advancing at constant speed with arbitrary heading in regular waves. Program organization and structure, data card input and output format are described. A sample computational problem is included to aid in understanding input and output format and to provide a test for proper implementation. A listing of the program, as used on the CDC-6700 computer system at NSRDC, is included.
