PROGRAM SCORES--SHIP STRUCTURAL RESPONSE IN WAVES

Information necessary for the use of the SCORES digital computer program is given. This program calculates both the vertical and lateral plane motions and applied loads of a ship in waves. Strip theory is used and each ship hull cross-section is assumed to be of Lewis form for the purpose of calculating hydrodynamic forces. The ship can be at any heading, relative to the wave direction. Both regular and irregular wave results can be obtained, including short crested seas (directional wave spectrum). All three primary ship hull loadings are computed, i.e. vertical bending, lateral bending and torsional moments. All the basic equations used in the analysis are given, as well as a description of the overall program structure. The input data requirements and format are specified. Sample input and output are shown. The Appendices include a description of the FORTRAN program organization, together with flowcharts and complete cross-referenced listing of the source language.
