The paper gives a brief description of modern seakeeping analysis and discusses its application to problems encountered in engineering practice. The authors' experience with the computer program SCORES, for prediction of ship motion responses, is reviewed, and examples of its application to typical problems are given. An appendix describes CARGO, a post-processing computer method developed to more fully utilize the motion response characteristics of the SCORES program.
