Abstract:

Resistance, trim, and sinkage were measured for a family of hull shapes derived from a simple box-like parent similar to present amphibians. The data were analyzed to derive conclusions as to the feasibility of major resistance reductions, the effects of drastic variations in hull proportions, and the presence of scale effects. Author
