Abstract : This report is a guide for measuring and analyzing acceleration data recorded during trials of full-scale high speed craft. Minimum requirements for instrumentation systems are summarized, and standardized data processing methods are presented to foster commonality and comparability between different organizations. Examples of recorded data are shown to illustrate data processing and data analysis methods. Numerous approaches to comparing and evaluating data sets are summarized.
