The serial tests for cargo liners are reviewed. Attention is given to the selection of results suitable for further analysis. Also the choice of representative hull forms from the series is discussed. Fore/afterbody sections of Moderate U character are designated standard forms. Regarding single hull form parameters the series includes block coefficients from 0.525 to 0.75 and length/breadth ratios from 6.18 to 8.35 with a standard breadth/draft of 2.4. The dimensional presentation of resistance data includes EHP as function of the ships speed, length, breadth, displacment, etc., all in metric units. The standard hull forms of the series can be approximated by mathematically defined forms. The use of analogue computer for easy derivation and drafting of arbitrary hull forms within the actual series is exemplified. ( Author )
