Title On Predicting Cavitation-Induced Hull Pressure Fluctuations - Wake Scale Effects And Signal Variability
Conference/Journal IMarEST Ship Noise and Vibration Conference, London
Month November
Year 2010

This paper presents research efforts currently made to incorporate the influence of wake scaling and signal variability in scale model experiments for the prediction of propeller-induced hull pressure spectra. The influence of wake scaling is considered particularly important for very large slender ships such as container vessels. Pressure signal variability is of importance for the interpretation of the origin of broadband excitation levels that are of concern in high comfort passenger vessels.
