HULL SKIN FRICTION AND PROSPECTS OF CONTROL
With steep rises in oil costs, and the need to obtain maximum performance and mileage on a limited budget, monitoring of ship performance and measurement of performance-controlling parameters have received more attention. The Paper concludes that adequate means are available to measure accurately both hull roughness and its effects on the perfomance of ships, and torsion meters should be fitted on all ships. The other basic parameter is the "standard speed", which requires a measured speed to be corrected to standard values of power, displacement and weather.
