Abstract:

The hull lift coefficient is one of the most important and one of the least tractable components of the dynamic straight-line stability and maneuvering equations. An analysis of the basic flow condition has been made, and similarities to theories and data for flat plates have been examined. The hull flow conditionis too complicated to be compared directly to flat plate flow conditions, but useful insight still has been gained. Available data for wing sections and sets of systematic hull series have shown trends of lift coefficient versus BL and C sub B, and have allowed rudimentary analyses of the effects of skegs, propellers, and rudders.
