SOME EXTENSIONS OF THE CLASSICAL APPROACH TO STRIP THEORY OF SHIP MOTIONS, INCLUDING THE CALCULATION OF MEAN ADDED FORCES AND MOMENTS

The application of the dynamical theory to the problem of a ship moving with constant forward speed on a free surface has been extended to include the exciting forces in oblique regular waves. As a result, it has become possible to derive a new formulation for the equations of motion, for a ship moving with five degrees of freedom. The application of the same theory has yielded formulas for the calculation of the mean added resistance and drift force in oblique regular waves and the calculation of all mean forces and moments for the forced oscillations of a ship in calm water.
