This appendix contains all plots and tables for the simulations involving 1-DOF prescribed roll motion of Model 5514 scaled to the length 142 m. Each of Figures D-1 through D-570 contains time-history plots of results from all codes for a single variable during one period of motion. If the code runner did not supply the data, the data vanish identically, or the data are insufficient for a single period, there is no curve for that code. Lack of data in any figure has been noted immediately below the figure. As necessary, time that appears on the horizontal axis has been shifted so that the roll angle is of the form phi phia sin omega t for some amplitude phia and some frequency omega. Further, time t has been replaced by t mod Te where Te is period of motion. Tables D-1 through D-1140 contain information related to results depicted in the figures. Two tables follow each figure. The first table gives estimates of the mean value and the amplitudes and phases of first and second harmonics obtained by Fourier analysis. Second table gives the minimum and maximum of the variable plotted in the figure. The minimum and maximum of both the filtered and unfiltered variable are provided. However, the plot itself was obtained from unfiltered data unless the data were already filtered by the code runner, as is the case for the results from NFA. Appendix N contains plots and tables for the behavior of the minimum and the maximum of each variable plotted in this appendix versus the roll amplitude phia. The frequencies and amplitudes of the prescribed roll motions of task 1 are the same for both Models 5514 and 5613 and for both speeds corresponding to Froude numbers 0.0 and 0.3. The highest frequency for the prescribed roll motion in task 1 differs from the highest frequency for the prescribed heave and pitch motions of task 1. The frequencies and amplitudes of the prescribed roll motion are given in the main part of the report and are also here for ease of reference.
