Content summary[edit]

It is necessary to know how much resistance a ship faces in water, at a given speed, to decide the power of the engine to install on the ship. This course will help you understand the causes of ship resistance, and how the resistance of a ship is calculated from model tests. It will also help you understand how shallow water affects the resistance of a ship.

Goals[edit]

By the end of this course, you should be able to

  • know what is meant by ship resistance
  • the different components of resistance
  • know to predict the resistance of the ship from model tests
  • know the effect of shallow water on resistance
