Abstract : Four proposed hull forms for seagoing work vessels were studied for: (1) Resistance in calm water; (2) rolling in uniform as well as in irregular waves in beam seas; (3) heaving and pitching in irregular head seas at four speeds. The results are tabulated and plotted as EHP vs. ship speed. Rolling response curves are given, as well as the expected rolling, pitching and heaving in various sea states.
