Abstract
The seakeeping and resistance trade-offs arising in frigate hull form design are addressed. The sources of model test data on frigate seakeeping and resistance are reviewed. A methodical series of model tests on frigate-type hull forms is described, and results are presented showing the effect of hull form parameters on resistance and seakeeping. An analytical parametric study of frigate seakeeping is described. In presenting the results of this study, emphasis is placed on slamming; key seakeeping parameters are identified and design priorities recommended. Design of a frigate hull form is discussed, and model tests results are presented for this hull. It is concluded that important improvements in the seakeeping qualities of frigates may be achieved by the selection of appropriate hull design parameters.
