THE CT COEFFICIENT FORMULATION FOR HIGH SPEED, DISPLACING VESSELS

In this paper, an empirical formula for the calculation of the specific total resistance of high speed displacing vessels is given. The expressions proposed are as a function of Froude number Fn and the following hull characteristics Cp C , B/T, L, allow the calculation of the residual specific resistance CR and then the CT values. The results, useful in the preliminary design stage, are completed with the limit range of validity of each formula.
