AN OUTLINE OF A SHIPYARD'S NEED FOR MODEL TESTING

The ship technical laboratories of today offer sophisticated programmes of model testing, ranging from simple towing tests to very complicated seakeeping and manoeuvring experiments. These procedures are time consuming and expensive and add considerably to the design cost. The question as to how much of this work is really necessary for the ship designer and the shipyard is debated in this Report. The discussion is based on experience gained at the Institutt for Skibs- og Haveteknik <ISH>, Denmark, in the following activities:- 1. Model making; 2. Resistance tests; 3. Determination of open water propeller characteristics; 4. Self-propulsion investigations; 5. Streamline tests; 6. Wake measurements with pitot tubes; 7. Measurements in waves.
