Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the Department of Architecture based within the Faculty of Engineering.

Research activity at Architecture explores a wide variety of significant research areas within architecture and the built environment. Among these is the better exploitation of innovative construction technologies and ICT to optimise 'total building performance', as well as reduce waste and environmental impact. Sustainable architectural and urban design is an important component of this. To this end, the Cluster for Research in Design and Sustainability (CRiDS) focuses its research energies towards developing resilient responses to the social, environmental and economic challenges associated with urbanism and cities, in both the developed and developing world.

This paper presents an extensive study on the experimental prediction of motions for the well-known 5415 frigate hull in intact and damaged conditions. The experimental campaign is conducted for two geosim models, 1/100 and 1/51 scale, at zero speed in head, beam and quartering seas. All experimental results for 1/51 model are presented as 1st and 2nd order RAO, commenting on physical reasons for second order response occurrences. The results show the changes in motion responses when a ship hull is in damaged condition, they highlight the model scale effects and demonstrate the comparisons between the tests in which the model may freely drift and those in which the mean position of the model is restrained. For damaged ship in free drift tests the damage opening orientation is varied and its effect on RAO and free drift velocity is commented.
