Date of Defense 2011-03-30 Availability unrestricted AbstractWith the use of tow-tank experiments, data may be generated for ships of various classes using comprehensive instrumentation. This data gives the ability to determine the response of ships to various sea-state conditions far in advanced of their construction and launch. However, this data does not indicate the effects of those sea-states to the individuals aboard that ship.
In order to define these effects a sea-state simulator must be designed and built. Once construction is completed a series of test must be conducted to determine the response of the simulator. This response allows the comparison to actual tow-tank data to determine if the simulator is capable of performing the desired research.
