MODEL TESTS TO DETERMINE THE RESISTANCE, PROPULSION AND MANEUVERING, CHARACTERISTICS OF A PROPOSED TWIN-SCREW 600,000 DWT NUCLEAR TANKER
Describes a program of ship model tests and computer studies for a proposed Twin-Screw 600,000 DWT Nuclear Tanker. The purpose of the program was to provide information related to resistance, propulsion, and maneuvering characteristics of the ship at specified conditions of displacement and trim. The tests for the subject program were performed in the HYDRONAUTICS Ship Model Basin (HSMB).
