DETERMINATION OF SIZE AND LOCATION OF FOILS FOR 2,000-TON HYDROFOIL SMALL WATERPLANE AREA SHIP (HYSWAS) FOR VERTICAL-PLANE STABILITY
The Hydrofoil Small Waterplane Area Ship to which this report, which is available in microfiche form, refers consists essentially of a submerged hull in the form of a body of revolution, a surface-piercing fin, and the above-water upper hull which is a wide platform. Wing-like hydrofoils attached to the submerged hull provide the necessary lift and control of the motions in both calm and rough water. Order from BSRA as No. 49,794.
