NOMINAL SPEED LOSS OF SHIPS IN WAVES

An attempt has been made to establish an approximate method to calculate the nominal speed loss of a ship in waves by taking into account the main engine characteristics of the full scale ship. In the case of a full ship, the measured values of added resistance are larger than the computed ones for the range of shorter wave length. The discrepancy can be attributed to the added resistance due to the wave reflection at the blunt bow. Order from NSFI as No. 16395.
