ON THE TWIN-HULL SHIP ( NO. 2 )

Non-symmetrical hull forms of twin-hull ships have already been described in Report No. 1. The theoretically expected advantage of twin-hull ships was not exhibited in that experiment, and for all speed ranges, resistance increased. In order to show this increase theoretically, it is necessary to study non-symmetrical hull forms in more detail. But, conducting experiments with symmetrical hull forms will not only give a check on theoretical predictions, but also it will provide valuable data on hull forms of twin-hull ships. In this report, experimental results on twin-hull ships with symmetrical hull forms and the related calculations are presented.
