PREDICTION OF ROLL, SWAY AND YAW MOTIONS OF HULLBORNE HYDROFOIL SHIPS

To provide further capability for prediction and analysis of hydrofoil hullborne seakeeping, a mathematical model and computer program have been developed to predict roll, sway and yaw motions of hullborne hydrofoil ships in beam seas. Predictions agree well with towing tank data for a 1:20-scale model of the PHM hydrofoil craft. (Author)
