EXPERIMENTAL AND PREDICTION TECHNIQUES FOR ESTIMATING ADDED POWER REQUIREMENTS IN A SEAWAY

The paper begins with a discussion of the various prediction techniques for estimating added power in a seaway, comparing their advantages and disadvantages. It is considered that the best method for properly accounting for both increased resistance and change in propulsive characteristics of a ship in a seaway is the use of self-propelled models in waves. There follows a review of experimental procedures in use at the David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center. In conclusion, the Authors examine the problems of extrapolating data to full scale and presentation of data, particularly that relating to propulsive coefficients. A bibliography containing much of the literature relevant to added resistance and power is also included. Order from BSRA as No. 49,612.
