PREDICTION OF MOTION AND HYDRODYNAMIC LOADS OF CATAMARANS

The analytical prediction of catamaran motions in head seas and hydrodynamic loads in beam seas is described. Correlation between the predicted and the model experimental results is presented and discussed. The analytical prediction is found satisfactory except for some discrepancies resulting from the inadequate account for viscous effects and the three-dimensional hydrodynamic effects.
