This paper presents a simplified approach to quantifying the comparison of acceleration responses of high-speed in rough seas. Statistical acceleration values, used to characterize craft seakeeping responses, including average of the highest 13rd, 110th, and 1100th peak accelerations and the root-mean-square RMS acceleration, are used to define the relative Ride Severity Index RSI.
