Giannotti and Buck Associates, Inc. has been tasked by the Naval Ship Engineering Center, Code 6136, to perform motion analyses on an oceanographic and research survey ship, T-AGOS, now in the concept design stage. Of particular interest in the study are two points on the ship representing equipment interface locations. The first point is located at Frame 59 on ship with three alternate heights having been investigated. The second point is located on the upper side of the cap rail on the fantail bulwark. The primary vehicle used in the analysis is the Five-Degree-of-Freedom Ship Motions Computer Program maintained by NAVSEC Code 6136. Statistical characteristics of the motions and long term motion predictions were desired. This report presents the approach to the problem and reports the results of the analyses. Author
