Formation of the SGEHYDRO in 1982 was spurred by the need within NATO for a forum to promote multinational co-operation in the general area of naval hydromechanics testing and research for problems not adequately covered by other NATO international exchange groups and the International Towing Tank Conference. The Groups mandate allows it to address current aspects of interest to naval hydromechanics including test and research facilities, testing techniques and instrumentation, prediction methods, model to full scale correlations, full scale trials, model tests, mathematical modelling and simulation and implications of instrumentation development in other fields of activity. Four Research Study Groups RSG have been formed. The RSGs on Full Scale Wave Measurements and on Sea Loads, Slamming and Green Seas Impact and Wake Measurements finished this phase in December 1985. The RSG on Cavitation Noise Scaling completed its initial planning phase in June 1986. The paper outlines the scope and objectives of the SGEHYDRO with special emphasis on the activity of the RSGs.
