Abstract:

The report deals first with the measured motions of the model in regular waves and the phase lag between them. The results of these analyses are used to find the longitudinal position of the apparent pitching axis as a function of ship speed. On the basis of this apparent pitching axis the instantaneous distribution of the inertia and hydraulic forces is calculated for one speed and the influence of these forces on the bending moment and shearing forces are shown.
