Hull forms of small high-speed wave-piercing monohull crafts and hydrodynamics study
- 13 Downloads
Wave-piercing design is a revolution in hull design for small high-speed boats to operate in adverse sea conditions. To study hydrodynamics of the small high speed wave piercing monohull craft systematically, four typical small high-speed wave-piercing monohull crafts were developed, and validated CFD methods were adopted to calculate hull resistances and motions. The resistances and hull motions of these high-speed wave piercing monohull crafts in calm water and waves were obtained and compared. Obvious operating differences can be observed. High-speed wave piercing monohull crafts with slender and twisted planing hulls have smaller resistance at high speed, but the dynamic effects increase as sea conditions worsen. The high-speed wave-piercing monohull craft with a slim multi-chine hull maintains in waves for softer hull motions but suffers the disadvantages of larger resistance. The high-speed wave piercing monohull craft with a triangular hull shows no obvious advantages compared with the other types.
