Paper Abstract

This paper has inferred a corrected wave resistance formula which can be suitable to the real ship's wave resistance computation and to be used to improve the hull's surfaces, through a method which adapts linear wave resistance theory and wave analysis. This paper uses B- spline curve surface to fit the hull's surface and uses SUMT to optimize the hull's surface. A ship form with minimum wave resistance has been obtained. The results of the computation and experiments have proven that the method, presented by this paper, is an effective method for ship improvement and design.
