WAVE-AND VISCOUS RESISTANCE OF THE OIL TANKER "REINE FABIOLA" WITH AND WITHOUT BULB

RESISTANCE DE VAQUE ET RESISTANCE VISQUEUSE DU PETROLIER "REINE FABIOLA" AVEC ET SANS BULBE

Retrofitting the bow with a bulb was conducive to a gain of speed of 0.8 knot in ballast, and 0.5 knot in loaded condition. Identity of viscous resistance for the two bow shapes made clear that only wave resistance was responsible for the gain of speed obtained in service with the bulbous bow. Wind tunnel tests allowed the form factor K of viscous resistance to be established. Data are shown in tabular and graphical form.
