Abstract : Comparison is made between model and full-scale predictions of long-term wave-induced bending moment trends for two ships, the S.S. WOLVERINE STATE and the S.S. CALIFORNIA BEAR. For predicting such statistical trends of wave bending moment from model tests two basic types of required data are discussed: Wave data from different levels of sea severity, along with relationships between wave heights and wind speeds, and, Model response amplitude operators as a function of ship loading condition, speed and heading.
