Abstract

This study established a seakeeping program to evaluate the motion responses of a high speed semi-planing craft and to develop a database for future route planning. A series 62 mono-hull was chosen for the test cases, comparing seakeeping performances with full-scale on-board measurements. The statistical results were obtained using spectral analysis, which combines the International Towing Tank Conference (ITTC) spectrum with the response amplitude operator (RAO) responses of each wave heading for a given sailing speed. The speed polar diagram was made to illustrate five degree-of-freedom (DOF) motion responses between sailing speeds and wave heading angles in a particular sea state. Although the craft has different trim angles at high speeds (because of dynamic lift) under various loading and draft conditions, this study only investigated the trim angles of 0° (even keel), 1° by the stern, and 2° by the stern, to understand the difference between their seakeeping performances. The results in this study provide a useful guideline for evaluating operational regulations and safety for high speed semi-planing crafts in the future.
