This thesis investigates the increased drag of a supertanker through the addition of flat plates mounted on the keel normal to the flow. Several arrays of these plates are analyzed for their drag producing ability and the results enumerated in tabular and graphical form. The arrays are compared one to another to determine the optimum or near optimum solution. In conjunction with the above, the percent reduction in head reach of a supertanker with various arrays affixed to the keel as opposed to a no-brake system is calculated and tabularized.
