Abstract:

The motions, velocities, and accelerations of two preliminary designs for a new class of nuclear-powered, guided-missile strike cruisers were predicted in regular waves and in long and short-crested seas. Important ship responses of the two hulls were compared for various sea conditions and ship heading angles. Results from the computer predictions are stored on computer permanent files for easy access and future use.
