Abstract:

A study was made of the structural and machinery characteristics of several hydrofoil ships in order to determine parameters which are of main importance for vibration analyses. A preliminary hull vibration calculation of a hydrofoil ship was performed. Instrumentation requirements for a full-scale vibration trial of a hydrafoil boat were proposed for an experimental evaluation of theory. The relative merits of model tests and computer studies to provide answers to problem areas are discussed. Author
