ROUGHNESS, EROSION AND FRICTION. THEIR INTERPRETATION, EVALUATION AND MEASUREMENT

The use of ablative antifoulings is becoming the most popular method of controlling hull roughness and it is therefore desirable that all concerned with the hull maintenance problem should be familiar with the concepts of roughness, friction resistance and the control of erosion rate. It is the aim of this paper to provide a general understanding of these phenomena. The causes of roughness are identified, some commonly used measurement methods are described and their limitations are discussed. The paper concludes with a review of laboratory work on roughness using energy measurements.
