Ship motion predictions for the cableship ARC-3, the oceanographic research ship T-AGOR-12, and the salvage tug ATS-1 operating in short crested multidirectional seas are given. The motions are calculated using Bretschneider wave spectra for a 1-foot significant wave height and various modal wave periods so that they are easily applicable for a wide range of sea conditions by simple linear scaling techniques. Root mean square motions and associated periods, as well as time histories and spectra, are presented.
