Statistic Model for the Estimation of the Resistance of Landing Craft Hulls
Keywords:Landing craft, Ship resistance, Multiple linear regression
One of the most important challenges in the development of the preliminary project of a ship is the estimation of propulsive power. This calculation can become a challenge for landing craft projects, since no specific estimation method for these ships is available, considering their special form characteristics. Using a systematized test database carried out in the ship model basin of Universidad Austral de Chile, a statistical model was generated through a multiple linear regression process to obtain an expression that serves to estimate the resistance for landing craft in preliminary stages of the project. Finally, the results of the regressions were compared with field measurements of three vessels in operation, showing a good agreement.
