Abstract:

Calculated results from the ABSSHIPMOTION computer program are compared with pressures obtained by experimental testing on scaled-down models of the SL-7 class containership and the S. J. CORT and with full-scale pressure measurements from the Great Lakes selfunloader, S.J. Cort. The degree of closeness in the correlations is different between the model-test and full-scale data. The correlation is also different between the SL-7 containership and the S.J. CORT. In general, the theoretical prediction has the same trend as measured values either from the model test or full-scale trial, with the model-test results showing a better correlation. It is not the intention of this report to either identify factors in the theory which are responsible for the discrepancies in correlation, nor to suggest what direction further research must take.
