Abdul Ghani, Mohamad Pauzi and Abdul Rahim, M. N. (2008) The prediction of wake wash in the towing tank. Jurnal Mekanikal (26). pp. 129-140. ISSN 0127-3396



The wash or ship-generated waves from high speed craft has become a common subject in research and development of marine transportation. Since some time now the wake wash of high speed craft has become a problem in particular on inland or confined waterways. This wake wash has an impact on safety and environment such as bank/shoreline erosion, risk to people on shore and small boats in harbors and changes in the local ecology. This paper describes the results of model test of a high speed patrol, together with theoretical prediction of wake wash.
