Abstract : This report presents predictions of ship motion responses due to the presence of waves for the T-ACS 4 Auxiliary Crane Ship, which is representative of a typical military container ship. It discusses an analytical procedure for considering a combination of sea and swell conditions. This report specifically addresses the motion responses of particular points on the ship which correspond to cargo locations. From these motion response predictions, this report develops a three-dimensional motion envelope for multiple wave headings.
