Abstract : Scale models of the SL-7 Containership and Great Lakes bulk carrier S.J. Cort were tested in head seas for a variety of speeds and wave lengths. Both models were free to heave and pitch. Pressures at various locations over the hull were measured and the results presented. The model of the SL-7 was also tested in conditions which measured the separate components of pressure. The diffraction pressures were measured by restraining the model and the radiation pressures were measured by forcing the model to oscillate in heave and pitch. (Author)
