FULL SCALE MEASUREMENTS ON THE SEAKEEPING PERFORMANCE OF THE CONTAINERSHIP "HIKAWA MARU"
To investigate seakeeping performance of a containership in the winter time North Pacific Ocean, full scale measurements were made on the containership "Hikawa Maru" on her voyages from Yokohama to Seattle from the end of November to the end of December, 1974. Motion-spectra and standard deviations were obtained from the measured data by spectrum analysis, and were compared with theoretically estimated values. The theoretical values of standard deviation of ship motions in short crested waves were also calculated using the New Strip Method. As a result, the seakeeping performance of the "Hikawa Maru" in the winter North Pacific Ocean was determined, showing that the correlation between the measured values and theoretical calculations was good.
