Abstract:

A model 4950 of a high-speed PGM motor gunboat was self-propelled in smooth water and regular waves with and without transom wedges. The results indicate that the required power and thrust increase due to ahead seas is greater with the wedges than without. The total thrust is, however, less in a seaway with the wedges than without
