Local wave effects near a front advancing into calm water
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1970-06)
A theory is developed which describes the local wave effects near a wave front advancing into calm water and is uniformly valid near the front. The waves generated by an oscillating vertical boundary (a wavemaker) and ...
Automatic control of propeller pitch
(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1962-06)
The object of this study was to determine the feasibility of automatically controlling propeller pitch to reduce RPM fluctuations caused by variations in propeller speed of advance. The investigation was made ignoring ...

(Cambridge, Massachusetts; Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 1951-05)
The authors have developed a procedure for obtaining a workable method giving satisfactory accuracy in preliminary ship design for predicting the curve of statical stability of a vessel when only the principal dimensions ...
