HYDRODYNAMIC CHARACTERISTICS OF PRISMATIC BARGES

The forces and moments acting on prismatic hulls are presented, for both wave excitation and motions. Using these charts a platform designer can easily calculate the motions of a barge in head seas or beam seas. An example is given to illustrate the procedure for calculating motions. In addition, predicted motions for several barge configurations agree well with corresponding model experiments.
