Abstract : A study was made of technical considerations in past and current Model Basin methods of conducting damping investigations of ship hulls. The report includes a summary of damping values of ships in vertical vibration and a review of factors affecting damping, methods of exciting hull vibrations, methods of determining damping from experimental data, and methods of applying damping in computation.
