ANALYTICAL PREDICTION OF SWATH SHIP MOTION

One of the advantages expected from a small-waterplane-area, twin-hull (SWATH) ship configuration is the improved seakeeping qualities compared to monohull ships in moderate to extreme sea conditions. To assist in the development of the SWATH concept, an analytical prediciton of motion of SWATH ships in waves has been developed at the David Taylor Naval Ship R&D Center, Bethesda, Md. The analytical method can predict the motion of a SWATH ship in five degrees of freedom in regular and irregular waves.
