Hull Hydrodynamics and Design

Wave Interference Catamaran

Since the main objective of this project involves investigating the resistance of a hull and how it is affected by the introduction of hydrofoils, it is important to understand the components of this hydrodynamic resistance. Additional components will be added with the addition of the lifting foils and the interaction between the hulls and foils will also need to be accounted for. These will be discussed in chapter 3. The first and most obvious resistance comportent is the visco 3 resistance...
