Abstract:

The purpose of the investigation is to predict the response amplitude operators squared transfer functions for the DLG-26 and DE-1052 Class Destroyers. The response amplitude operators, RAOs, are computed for the ships in LAMPS Light Airborne Multipurpose System configuration and are to be used for ship motion predictions in shiphelicopter interface design. Motion response amplitude operators are presented for speeds 10 and 20 knots, at ship headings relative to the sea of 0, 30, 60, 90, 120, 150, and 180 degrees 180 degrees denoting head seas.
