Ship squat in water of varying depth
MetadataShow full item record
Two theories are described which predict ship squat in water of varying depth. Firstly, a one-dimensional theory is proposed for a ship in a narrow channel of varying depth. This is solved analytically in the case of a step depth change, and numerically for general depth profiles. Secondly, a slender-body theory is discussed for wider channels or open water. A numerical method is developed and used to find the squat of a ship passing a step depth change.

Gourlay, Tim (2013)The problem of predicting ship squat in non-uniform water depth is studied in this paper. For transverse depth variations, calculations are done using slender-body shallow-water theory, as implemented in the code ...
Gourlay, Tim; Tuck, E. (2001)A ship moving steadily forward in shallow water of constant depth h is usually subject to downward forces and hence squat, which is a potentially dangerous sinkage or increase in draft. Sinkage increases with ship speed, ...
