“MARIN-Systematic Series of High-Speed Displacement Ship Hull Forms”, by Peter van Oossanen and Ben Pieffers, Published in “Schip en Werf”, Vol. 55, No. 9/10, May 1988, pp. 197-206 (ID No. 204).
This paper describes the work carried out to define an optimum hull form to serve as a parent for a large series of hull models of which the length-beam ratio, beam-draught ratio, and block coefficient are systematically varied – which models were subsequently tested in calm water and in waves in the towing tank.
