MIDSHIP WAVE BENDING MOMENTS IN A MODEL OF THE CARGO SHIP WOLVERINE STATE RUNNING AT OBLIQUE HEADINGS IN REGULAR WAVES

Vertical and lateral wave bending moments were measured at the midship section of a 1/96-scale model of the C4-S-B5 cargo ship WOLVERINE STATE. The model was self-propelled through a ship speed-range of 8 to 17 knots at seven headings to regular waves of lengths between 0.3 and 1.8 times the length between perpendiculars/ moderate wave heights not exceeding 1/50 of the model length were used. Results are presented in charts of moment-amplitude/wave-amplitude versus ship speed, with wave length as the parameter. Two ship conditions, light load and full load, are covered.
