Abstract : Captive model resistance data are presented for a series of hull forms developed from existing AG(EH) lines as part of a hydrofoil craft research program. These hulls are also applicable to planing craft. Variations in length-to-beam, length-to-draft, and beam-to-draft ratios are represented for each of two basic configurations, one suitable for airplane-type hydrofoil support systems and the other for canard type. Resistance, trimming moment, effective longitudinal center of gravity, draft, wetted area, and wetted lengths are presented for various trim angles, loadings, and speeds in the hullborne and takeoff regimes.
