Abstract

The results of experimental tests relative to resistance, seakeeping and roll decay of a warped hard chine hull form, suitable for large yacht design are reported. To better investigate the effect of hard chine, a round bilge identical model has been tested. Resistance tests have been performed at Fv ranging from 0.90 to 4.14, for three different LCG. Results for resistance, sinkage and trim are given. For the most realistic condition dynamic wetted surface is determined separating pressure and whisker spray areas to allow reliable full scale powering predictions. For the same static trim condition, heave, pitch and accelerations have been measured for head sea at Fv = 1.35 and 1.89 in regular waves for different λ./L ratios at constant wave steepness H/λ. = 1/50. Roll decay at five speeds and roll at zero speed were investigated. The reported data and considerations represent a reference for the implementation of hard chine hull form in the design of displacement and semidisplacement large yachts.
