THE ESTIMATON OF SHIP MOTION INDUCED FORCES

Newton's 2nd law is applied to a point on a ship moving in waves. The ship motion induced accelerations at the point are thereby determined. The physical significance of the terms in the acceleration equations are discussed and methods for evaluating them are considered. Numerical estimates are calculated and compared with the results from a ship motion computer program. Recommendations are made concerning the use of such estimates in ship design.
