EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE FOR THE DETERMINATION OF WAVE RESISTANCE IN A TOWING TANK

The technique, equipment, and experimental procedure presently used at Iowa Institute of Hydraulic Research to obtain a record of the water-surface profile at a fixed point as a ship model is towed past it, is described in detail. The equations and computer programs used to obtain the wave resistance of the ship model from the acquired data are also presented.
