Abstract : The resistance properties and effective horsepower requirements for a trimaran being considered for SC-21 (Surface Combatant for the 21st century) are investigated. The effects on EHP due to increased side hull displacement are analyzed. Residual-resistance coefficients are obtained for side hull displacements up to 5% of the center hull's displacement. Coefficients are based on the Taylor Standard Series and Series 64 data. The effects of interference on effective horsepower requirements are discussed. The potential use of Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) code is presented.
