EFFECTS OF BOW FLARE SHAPE TO THE WAVE LOADS OF A CONTAINER SHIP

Model tests were conducted in both regular and irregular waves for models with two kinds of bow flare form. The purpose of the tests was to obtain information on the effects of bow flare on deck wetness and the asymmetry of the vertical wave bending moment. The model was made of synthetic resins so as to simulate the bending rigidity of a full scale ship. The measured results are analysed as to the intensity of impact pressure in the bow, the frequency of the deck wetness, and the asymmetry of the bending moment.
