Introduction Although considerable advance's in the theory of ship wave resistance have been made in recent decades, a good deal of this work is restricted to linearised theory and ideal hull shapes - with the consequence that there is always an element of doubt in the mind of the designer as to the reliability of such methods. More recently a number of so-called Ranki
