Abstract:

The following researches were conducted under this contract 1 Measurements of the total and wake-survey viscous resistance of the Wigley ship form, with and without sinkage and trim restraints, 2 Measurements of the boundary layer and wake of the Wigley hull at various Froude numbers comparison with computed boundary layer application to computation of ship wave resistance including viscous effects, 3 Added moment-of-inertia of a rolling ship, low- frequency limit, and 4 Procedures for investigating existance and finding solutions for slender-body centerplane distributions derivation of an exact slender-body solution for an ellipsoid.
