Abstract

A series of carefully controlled experiments on the wave-generation characteristics of a model of a compartmented surface-effect ship has been conducted in a towing tank. Configurations of the model included cases encompassing one subcushion and two subcushions, as well as differing values of the pressures in the subcushions. It was shown that a reduced wave generation in the appropriate Froude number range could be achieved in this manner. Furthermore, a previously developed theory for the wave generation of marine vessels was verified for the model for a Froude number greater than 0.40.
