Abstract:

Experiments were conducted on a model of a catamaran seaplane with a length of 94.5 inches, a deadrise angle of 60 degrees and a length to beam ratio of 25. The behavior of the model in smooth water and regular beam, bow and head waves was investigated for four distances between the hulls, two vertical locations of the center of gravity, two wave heights and four model speeds.
