This paper provides a brief review of the model test program conducted by the Ship Hydrodynamics Laboratory of the University of Michigan on the MV St. Clair, Bay Shipbuilding Corporation, Hull 714. Due to some rather unique constraints imposed by Great Lakes operation, large bulk carriers have encountered unusual problems in the area of hydrodynamic design. Many of these areas of concern have been addressed through model studies. Specifically investigated were the effects on resistance, wake and flow patterns of various bow and stern variations. Results of those tests including self-propulsion of the final design are included.
