Abstract:

The report demonstrates the validity of employing structural segmented models to predict prototype response for use in ship design. By means of spectral analysis, bending moment and pitch angle response amplitude operators are obtained and compared for model and prototype. In addition, whipping bending moments resulting from bow-flare immersion for model and prototype are analyzed and compared. The results of these comparisons show good agreement between model and prototype. Author
