Study on Formulation of a Guarantee System for Seakeeping


High Speed Circulating Water Channel

In this study, a system to guarantee a ship's performance in waves, or its seakeeping, is proposed for ship design. Generally, the speed and manoeuvrability of a ship in a trial are guaranteed in the building of the ship but its performance in waves is currently not guaranteed quantitatively. We are implementing a project that realizes high added value to a ship's design such as high safety, high performance and maintenance free ships by adopting into the design the concept of a guarantee system for operating in waves. The guaranteed items are the propulsion performance and manoeuvrability in waves, wave loads, structural response etc.
