MANUAL FOR MONO-HULL OR TWIN-HULL SHIP MOTION PREDICTION COMPUTER PROGRAM

Descriptions of two digital computer programs which calculate the motion of a mono-hull ship or a twin-hull ship are given. The ship is assumed to be advancing at constant speed with arbitrary heading in regular waves. The heave and pitch motion equations are solved in the program MOT35; the sway, roll and yaw motion equations are solved in the program MOT246. Computer input and output and program usage are described. Listings of the program as well as sample input and output are given. (Author)
