THE EFFECT OF PROBE LOCATION ON A MODEL WAVE RESISTANCE SURVEY ALONG A LONGITUDINAL CUT

Longitudinal-cut wave survey experiments using lateral wave slope data and wave height data were carried out on a Series 60, 0.60-block model in the Webb Model Tank. The results in each case show a dependence on the lateral distance of the wave cut away from the model at the higher Froude numbers (speeds) tested. Consistently lower results were obtained when using lateral wave slope data compared with those obtained when using wave height data. A discussion of possible causes of these findings is given.
