Abstract:

This Coastal and Hydraulics Engineering Technical Note CHETN is a continuation of the earlier CHETN entitled, Ankudinov ship squat predictions - Part I Theory and FORTRAN programs, CHETN-IX-19 Briggs 2009 that documented the Ankudinov squat formulas and described two FORTRAN programs for single and multiple ship speed applications. It also compared the Ankudinov formula with several of the PIANC empirical squat formulas for a Panamax bulk carrier and tanker. This CHETN continues the comparisons in Part I with actual laboratory and field measurements for validating the relative accuracy of the predictions. Comparisons are also made with several of the more popular PIANC 1997 empirical formulas.
