STATISTICAL DATA FOR THE EXTRAPOLATION OF MODEL PERFORMANCE TESTS

In view of an adequate extrapolation of model performance test results and statistical analysis of results of towing tank experiments and full-size speed trials has been made. This analysis covers not only the derivation of the correlation factors that account for the scale effects that are present in the model-test results, but also the separation of the resistance into components of different origin with emphasis on the determination of the form factor from either low-speed resistance measurements or from a statistical formula. Some of these results have been published in a previous paper. In that article, however, the extrapolation method has not been described in detail.
