SHIP WAVES IN NAVIGABLE WATERWAYS

Duncan Hay

Abstract


Model tests were conducted at the University of California, Berkeley, on six ship models to determine the heights of the waves produced by ships. Measurements were made at various distances from the sailing line with the models moving at various speeds in various water depths. The results of the tests are presented in graphical form, as prototype values.
