Development of a Multifactor Regression Model of Ship Maneuvering Forces Based on Optimized Captive-Model Tests
The paper provides the results of model tests planned with an optimized experimental design method. Captive-model tests have been carried out according to such a design on a computerized planar-motion carriage with a model of a fast catamaran with five varying factors (drift angle, rate-of-yaw amplitude, sinkage, trim and heel angles) and with all six force/moment components measured at each run. The measured values were used after preprocessing for construction of polynomial regression models for all force components acting upon the catamaran's hulls. It is demonstrated that the optimized experimental design method allows rather complicated mathematical models for maneuvering hydrodynamics forces to be obtained from captive model tests at a reasonable level of effort.

More about this publication?
- The Journal of Ship Research is a quarterly publication providing highly technical papers on applied research in hydrodynamics, propulsion, ship motions, structures, and vibrations. While the Journal requires that papers present the results of research that advances ship and ocean science and engineering, most contributions bear directly on other disciplines, such as civil and mechanical engineering, applied mathematics, and numerical analysis. High quality papers are contributed from the U.S., Canada and overseas, with representation from established authorities as well as new researchers.
