PROCEDURES FOR HYDRODYNAMIC EVALUATION OF PLANING HULLS IN SMOOTH AND ROUGH WATER

Recent Davidson Laboratory basic studies of planing hull hydrodynamics have produced a wealth of technology which is not generally available to the small boat design profession. Included are studies related to the pre-planning resistance of transom stern hulls; the effectiveness of trim control flaps; the effect of bottom warp on planing efficiency; the influence of re-entrant transom forms; and the seakeeping of planing hulls. The present paper consolidates these results in a form suitable for design purposes and illustrates their application in predicting planing performance in smooth and rough water.
