Although rudders operate under the influence of waves during most of their service life, little systematic information is available about the effects of waves upon rudder forces. MARIN (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands) therefore carried out an extensive program of model tests to measure the effectiveness of rudders in waves. The results of these tests are summarized. Measurement results were compared with results obtained from calculations based on simple theories and the degree of agreement is discussed.
