Comparison of 30-knot wave patterns generated by the initial and optimised shape
for a BGV-163 (Icare calculation code).
The hull shape of the BGV-163 was computer optimised at the Val de Reuil Hull Tank-Testing Centre in France. The “Bataos” software programme
was used for hull shape and the ICARE code
(Navier-Stokes free-surface)
for motion-resistance
calculations.
