A CORRELATION STUDY OF SL-7 CONTAINERSHIP LOADS AND MOTIONS--MODEL TESTS AND COMPUTER SIMULATION (SL-7-12)

A correlation study is carried out for the SL-7 container ship by means of comparison of results for structural loads and motions in waves obtained from model tests and computer calculations. The different aspects that could affect computer predictions are examined via further computations and analyses in order to determine their influence on the output data. Similarly an examination of the possible effects that influence the model test data are also examined. The main objective of this study is to determine the capabilities of both test methods for prediction purposes. Comparisons are also made between theoretical predictions and results for other related ship models for which test data are available.
