Abstract:

The main purpose of the seakeeping trials is to investigate the seaworthiness of a vessel, i.e. to study those qualities which determine the ships behavior in waves. It is usually considered that the seaworthiness of a ship is typified by the lateral, keel, and vertical rolling and by the acceleration in the ships hull caused by this rolling the loss in travel speed by the pitching of the vessel by the flooding and spraying of the decks and the superstructures by the exposure of the ends and of the propellers by the strength of the hull and of its individual designs by the possibility of the utilization of the ships technical equipment during movement through waves, and also by the general adaptability of the vessel to navigating under stormy conditions.
