“Resistance Prediction of Small High-Speed Displacement Vessels – State of the Art”, by Peter van Oossanen, Published in “International Shipbuilding Progress”, Volume 27, No. 313, pp. 212-224, September 1980 (ID No. 449).

For estimating the resistance of the hull in the preliminary stage of a design project use is often made of the results of model tests with systematically-varying hull forms. This paper presents the results of some of these model series in a new and consistent manner allowing for comparison of the results. In addition, this paper presents a summary of available empirical and statistically-derived expressions for hull form drag.
