EFFECT OF SHALLOW WATER ON THE PROPULSION PARAMETERS OF LARGE- CAPACITY SHIPS
Most research on how shallow water affects ship propulsion characteristics is based on model tests. It has been shown that hydrodynamic characteristics derived in this way contain errors that result from a scale effect. Field test studies are therefore of vital scientific and practical importance. Such a study was carried out on the BORIS BUTOMA-type ore-oil carrier, the AKADEMIK SECHENOV. This ship has a displacement length of 244m, a beam of 39.8m, a summer draft of 15.65m, and a summer displacement of 132,640 tons. The tests are described and the conclusions drawn are presented.
