Abstract
The FORTRAN computer program SWATM2 enables calculation of five degree-of-freedom motions for SWATH ships. It is a development of an earlier DREA computer program with the added capability of predicting performance in long or short irregular crested seas with a variety of sea spectra. A worked example demonstrates satisfactory agreement between calculated and experimental results.
