AbstractThis report describes the bare hull resistance experiments carried out on 5 m models of a PANAMAX bulk carrier in April and May of 2015 to assess the effects of proposed changes in model construction techniques on experimental results. Four model options were assessed during this session. The test results for these four options are compared to the large model originally tested in April 2013 and a repeat test of the large model done as part of this test session. Repeatability tests were done at multiple speeds to estimate the typical uncertainty of a resistance test done in this laboratory.
