Abstract:

A model of an SL-7 containership was towed in calm water and in waves to determine its relative motion and deck wetness characteristics. Several relative motion components were measured, including wave diffraction and mean shifts in waves which are not currently included in predictions of relative motions. It was also found that the above - water flare of the bow was very effective in reducing deck wetness. Author
