EVALUATION OF THE TRIM OF A PLANING BOAT AT INCEPTION OF PORPOISING

Planing boats porpoise in smooth water when the angle of attack, or trim of the planing surface exceeds a critical value that depends on the speed, on the configuration of the hull and on the location of the center of gravity. The purpose of the present paper is to provide designers with a straight-forward method for the evaluation of the critical trim corresponding to a given set of conditons. Numerical applications show that the trims so computed agree with experimental results within acceptable limits.
