Vertical and lateral wave bending moments were measured at the midship section of a 196-scale model of the C4-S-1A Mariner-class cargo ship California Bear. The model was self-propelled through a ship speed-range of 10 to 22 knots at seven headings to regular waves of lengths between 0.2 and 2.0 times the length between perpendiculars moderate wave heights not exceeding 150 of the model length were used. Results are presented in charts of bending-moment-amplitudewave-amplitude versus ship speed, with wave length as the parameter. Two ship loading conditions, representative of actual westbound and eastbound trans-Pacific voyages, are covered. Author
