Abstract:

The Integrated Ship Design System ISDS, is in development to permit preliminary ship design to be accomplished using interactive computing. Currently ISDS does not address ship dynamics and this report explores programs in this discipline for inclusion in ISDS. A literature search was performed to identify, classify, and tabulate computer programs involving ship dynamics. The search included programs addressing motion prediction, added resistance in waves, slamming, deck wetness, and maneuvering for displacement hulls, hydrofoils, surface effect ships, air cushion vehicles, planing hulls, and catamarans. Candidate programs were analyzed with respect to their input data requirements and the relationship of these requirements to the flow of data among existing design programs of the Integrated Ship Design System ISDS, and two dynamics programs for displacement hulls are recommended for integration into ISDS.
