ROLL DISTRIBUTION OF AN ADVANCED NUCLEAR CARGO SHIP ON TRADE ROUTE 12; UNSTABILIZED AND STABILIZED USING A FLUME STABILIZATION SYSTEM FOR U.S. MARITIME ADMINISTRATION, WASHINGTON, D.C.
The rolling motion of a Nuclear Containership is investigated to arrive at a basis for developing reactor design criteria. A loaded voyage on trade route 12 New York, Panama, Japan is selected as a basis for calculating maximum roll angles under severe sea conditions and zero ship speed. The most severe conditions occurring on trade route 12 occur in the Northern Pacific Ocean. Oceanographic data in existance for the Northern Pacific is used in conjunction with ship response data derived from model test results to predict the probability of large roll angles occurring. A FLUME STABILIZATION SYSTEM is incorporated into the calculations to predict its effect on the roll motion for the conditions described. ( Author )
