THE EFFECT OF TRANSVERSE SIDE LOAD ON SMALL WATERPLANE AREA TWIN HULL (SWATH) STRUCTURES

This study examines the influence of transverse side load and ship configuration on the structural weight of SWATH ships. The results show that small ships are less sensitive than large ships to side loads, and that long slender ships will have heavier structure than short full ships. (Author)
