A parametric method for evaluation of resistance of swath ships


Warianty tytułu

Języki publikacji



This paper contains formulation of a parametric method for evaluation of SWATH ship’s hull resistance. The method was elaborated on the basis of numerical calculation results obtained by using structural methods based on ship hydrodynamic theory and performed for sufficiently large series of body forms with systematically changing ship form parameters.Also, results of verifying investigations dealing with features of the method in question are presented by comparing the obtained resistance characteristics with those achieved by other authors as well as with ship model experimental test results. The obtained results of the verification indicate that the elaborated method can be useful in preliminary designingthe SWATH ships
