What influences rigid inflatable boat motions?
Townsend, N.C., Wilson, P.A. and Austen, S. (2008) What influences rigid inflatable boat motions? Proceedings of the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Part M: Journal of Engineering for the Maritime Environment, 222, (4), 207-217. (doi:10.1243/14750902JEME115).
This paper presents results of full-scale and model-scale rigid inflatable boat (RIB) experiments identifying the influences of speed, ballast, wave height, encounter frequency, and tube pressure on the motion responses of Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) Atlantic RIBs. A discussion of the results and the influences on the motions is made with a description of the typical motion responses, measures to describe the motion, the function of a RIB tube, and the effect of the motions on the occupants
