A METHOD OF DETERMINING HULL FORM OF LOW RESISTANCE AND HIGH PROPULSIVE EFFICIENCY

This paper describes a method for obtaining the optimum ship form of low resistance and high propulsive efficiency including experimental validation. A method for considering propulsive efficiency starting from the lowest resistance form is described. The method is applied to the Series 60 model of 0.60 Cb. Resistance and self-propulsive efficiency of two optimum models produced with different constraints are measured in a circulating water tank. The results of experiments show the effectiveness of the method for obtaining a low resistance, high propulsive efficiency hull form.
