EFFECT OF INITIAL ACCELERATION ON SHIP WAVE PATTERN AND WAKE SURVEY METHODS

Wave resistance calculations based on wave survey methods assume a constant ship velocity. The possible effects of initial acceleration are studied for different wave survey methods, and a procedure for determining the existence of an initial acceleration wave is proposed.
