Multiple computational studies, using a variety of software tools, were completed in the hydrodynamic design process for the Composite High Speed Vessel project. These were followed by an extensive model testing program to validate and extend the computational results. The purpose of this paper is to compare the results obtained from the computational analyses with the model test data.
