Abstract
The paper surveys the applications of strip theory to low length to beam ratio (L/B) vessels (L/B < 7.0) in an attempt to establish the domain of L/B values and of Froude numbers in which strip theory predictions are reliable. A number of the papers that are included in this review contain direct comparisons between the predictions of strip theory and model test results for low L/B vessels. The vessels considered had L/B values ranging from 2.0 to 7.0. These papers are discussed in detail, and their abstracts are included as an appendix. It appears that strip theory gives fair to good predictions of the pitch and heave amplitudes of vessels with L/B ratio greater than about 4.0, up to Froude numbers less than about 0.4. TRUNCATED
