This appendix contains all plots and tables for the simulations of task 3 involving 2-DOF nominal wave contouring of Model 5514 scaled to the length 142 m. It presents results for wave contouring in both beam and following seas. In either case the vertical position of the center of gravity is always at the water surface. For condition 1, where the ship undergoes prescribed heave and pitch motions in regular following seas, the wavelength and wave steepness are given by equations lambdaL 2 and Hlambda 120. The longitudinal slope of the hull matches the slope of the waves at CG. For condition 2, where the ship undergoes prescribed heave and roll motions in regular beam seas, the wavelength and wave steepness are given by the equations lambdaL 1 and Hlambda 110. Here the transverse slope of the hull matches the slope of the waves at CG. Results for Froude numbers 0.0 and 0.3 are included. Each of Figures J-1 through J-102 contains time-history plots of the results from all codes for each 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. As necessary, the time that appears on the horizontal axis has been shifted so that the heave displacement equal to the wave height at CG is of the form eta etaa sin omega t for some amplitude etaa and some amplitude omega. Further, the time t has been replaced by t mod Te where Te is the period of the motion. For beam seas, the data from AEGIR were modified before plotting so that the results correspond to waves coming from the starboard side of the hull. Tables J-1 through J-204 contain information related to the results found in the figures. Two tables follow each figure. The minimum and maximum of both the filtered and unfiltered variable are provided although the plot itself was obtained from unfiltered data.
