A parametric study carried out to investigate the vertical free vibrations of a ship hull is described. The analysis takes into account all the effects of the rotary inertia of mass, shear distortion, thrust force, shear lag and various damping components. The influence of these parameters on ship hull vibrations is explained. Special emphasis is placed upon a method for calculating the overall damping ratios.
