Abstract:

This report attempts to verify the hypothesis that the ratio of the residuary resistance coefficients C sub R for two sufficiently similar ships is equal to the ratio of their wave resistance coefficients C sub W. Several test cases are constructed using Series 60 and Taylor Standard Series ships. Wave resistance coefficients are obtained from the evaluation of the Mitchel integral by Hsiungs method which, within the limitations inherent in thin ship theory, can be applied to any ship shape. For all the test cases, calculated wave resistance coefficients and the residuary resistance coefficients are presented.
