Title. Ship motions and drag reduction / By. Symposium on Naval Hydrodynamics Bergen, Norway) Doroff, Stanley W. Lunde, J. K. Full text of "Ship motions and drag reduction" See other formats. Frictional drag is a significant part of the overall resistance, and ship operators have known for years that a smooth hull free of "fouling" will lead to higher ship speeds and fuel savings. A much larger reduction in the frictional drag can be achieved if the water is moved away from the surface entirely. induced ship motions . Figure 3. Waterline area of a monohull, catamaran and SWATH  Brizzolara  optimized SWATH hull form with an automatic method to achieve the lowest drag at the high speeds. He obtained four optimized underwater hulls at four reference speeds. Examples of corresponding demi-hull panel meshes are given in Figure by: 5.
The vertical/Z axis, or yaw axis, is an imaginary line running vertically through the ship and through its centre of gravity.A yaw motion is a side-to side movement of the bow and stern of the ship. The transverse/Y axis, lateral axis, or pitch axis is an imaginary line running horizontally across the ship and through the centre of gravity. A pitch motion is an up-or-down movement of the bow. Ship motions. A ship at sea moves in six degrees of motion: heave, sway, surge, roll, pitch and yaw. The first three are linear motions. Heaving is the linear motion along the vertical Z-axis, swaying is the motion along the transverse Y-axis, and surging is the motion along the longitudinal X-axis.

The motions of m ship calculated from a Bretschneider spectrum with average period 15s and significant height 5m. The ship is free to move, but it has zero foward speed. When the ship is moving through water under propulsion various motions can be observed. Mainly Rolling & Pitching can be felt by the personnel onboard. But there are six kinds of motions. They are Rolling, Surging, Pitching, Swaying, Yawing & Heaving. Special cases are Synchronous rolling & Parametric rolling.
