SCALING PROBLEMS OF DYNAMIC MOTIONS IN WAVES FROM MODEL TESTS OF SURFACE EFFECT SHIPS AND AIR CUSHION VEHICLES

The scarcity of motion response scaling data presents an accuracy problem for model tests of surface effect ships and other air cushion vehicles. under The dominant influence of ambient atmospheric pressure to the model's data is shown, with results considered in terms of both steady state and transient response characteristics. Special model test procedures that attempt to overcome this problem are discussed, together with final recommended procedures for use in predicting full-scale behavior.
