Abstract:

DRDC Atlantic ordered the Maritime Research Institute Netherlands MARIN to perform a study on the hydrodynamic efficiency for frigatedestroyer type of vessels in order to improve their requirements for the allowable fuel consumption. MARIN proposed to evaluate the model test results of about 1520 frigates from NATO related countries and to present this in dimensionless tables and diagram form. The report will contain a section describing how the derived data have been obtained from the model test data, including assumptions and other relevant issues. Based on our business confidentiality agreement with our relations the data of the scatter diagram derived don t show any reference or particulars vessels, but the ranges of the general parameters such as length, beam, displacement, prismatic coefficient, slenderness ratio, year of testing of the final selected vessels all with twin screw controllable pitch propellers are listed in a table in the next section.
