Abstract : A fully restrained shiplike model has been towed in regular waves to measure the exciting forces and moments acting on it. The results are obtained by integrating the pressure measured over the wetted surface and compared with the theoretical values computed according to the classical Froude-Krylov Theory. The total heave forces and the pitch moments are also obtained by direct force measurement to check the results obtained by pressure integration. (Author)
