A brief history of mathematical ship-squat prediction, focussing on the contributions of E.O. Tuck.
MetadataShow full item record
This article traces the contributions of Prof. E.O. Tuck to the field of mathematical ship-squat prediction. The review expands on Tuck’s own review of his early work (Ann. Rev. Fluid Mech. 10:33, 1978) and describes the use of his formulae in modern squat-prediction methods. A method for calculating Tuck’s sinkage and trim coefficients using easily obtainable ship parameters is also described.

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, ...
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 (2003)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 ...
