Instrumented Free-Running Model Tests and their Application to Small High-Speed Craft

Seaspeed Marine Consulting

The use of instrumented free-running hydrodynamic models has recently enabled significant advances to be made in the understanding of high-speed craft performance at sea.

This paper outlines the benefits and challenges of this approach with reference to SAR vessel designers, to leading suppliers of fast wind-farm support catamarans who are using this technology to specify their new craft and to the builders of very fast monohull craft investigating high speed dynamic stability.
