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.
