Abstract : Seakeeping performance measures are discussed. This is followed by the description of a method for efficiently calculating such performance measures. The relation of this method to the scheme used by NAVSEA to generate and describe hull forms at early design stages is discussed. An application of the hull form design, seakeeping assessment process is given. Finally, suggestions are made for future work. (Author)
