Abstract:

In this study, the viscous resistances of the Wigley parabolic ship model were measured by the wake-survey method. Since no experimental data for the viscous resistance are available with this model restrained in both trim and sinkage, the differences between total and viscous resistances are compared with the wave resistance derived by wave-pattern analysis.
