Abstract:

Several computer programs for the analysis of longitudinal wave cuts which were developed at the University of Michigan under the direction of S.D. Sharma have been converted at the David W. Taylor Naval Ship Research and Development Center DTNSRDC for use on the CDC 6000 Computer Series. The computer programs that are documented in this report perform the following tasks convert digital wave cut data for use in a wave analysis program which determines free-wave spectra for a number of transverse wave numbers and calculates the wave resistance plot the free wave spectra determine and plot the contours of bulb influence factors. The programs have been tested at DTNSRDC on a sample of wave cut data measured at the University of Michigan. Author
