Abstract : The David Taylor Model Basin cooperated with the American Towing Tank Conference in a study comparing results obtained by different towing techniques used in the different basins in the United States. Resistance tests were conducted with the ATTC Standard Model, with and without studs. The total resistance and the total resistance coefficients are presented in graphical and tabular form as a function of speed and Reynolds number. (Author)
