Froude number and wave ship resistance similarity

Froude number and wave ship resistance

William Froude(1810- 1878) English engineer and naval architect

creator of the first Towing tank for testing models

Essential in the hydrodynamics study, the Froude Number (Fr) is a dimensionless number linking gravity(g), velocity(v), and boat Length (L) :

Fr= v/(g.L)

While the architects of the time argued that only the experience of the real, could give applicable results, and considered experiments on models, such as " nice little fun experience" , William Froude developed laws of similarity and practiced work on friction.

 

William Froude expressed the fundamental hypothesis, stating that the resistance to the advancement of vessels is the sum of:

This resistance is a function of nombre de Froude

This resistance is a function of Reynolds number and roughness coefficient of the hull

 

Although this division of the resistance in distinct parts, is theoretically questionable, thus separating these two components and assuming them independent, it is possible to determine the rules of similarity between resistance to the advancement of scale models and prototypes of actual size.

similitude

Predictions he made on models, Verified by towing a ship in sea, (the Greyhound) were successful, giving ship resistance, only 10% below the actual observations.

The method models, then entered the era of practical applications.

Despite advances in theory and computer means, this method is still valid, and it is still practiced nowadays in the design of modern ships:
