Small ships resistance estimation in planning domain
The present paper investigates a theoretical method proposed by Mordvinov in order to estimate the small ship resistance in the planning domain. The practical evaluation of this problem with satisfactory accuracy constitutes an important element in the initial design phase. The computer code PHP-NM-RI-G, realised in the Research Centre of the Naval Architecture Faculty of “Dunarea de Jos” University of Galati was described and run in order to compute the resistance performance of a small ship in planning domain. The components of the planning ship resistance were determined and a comparative analysis was performed. The computer code may be applied in the initial design process of planning small ships.
