The regression analysis of some ship model resistance data

Molland, A.F. and Watson, M.J. (1988) The regression analysis of some ship model resistance data , Southampton, UK University of Southampton 16pp. (Ship Science Reports, 36).

Record type: Monograph (Project Report)


The background to the investigation and development of new regression equations suitable for the prediction of total hull resistance is described.

The investigation indicated that, given an adequate number of data, equations derived at discrete increments of speed-length ratio and with a limited number of hull definition variables can provide very satisfactory preliminary resistance predictions. Standard errors are of the order of 3% to 6%.
