Some Systematic Model Experiments of the Bow-Spray Characteristics of Flying-Boat Hulls Operating at Low Speeds in Waves
Description: Report discusses the results of testing on several models of flying boats, the XPB2M-1, the XPBB-1, the JRM-1, and 11 other models to determine the effect of bow form on the amount of spray thrown onto the windshield of a flying boat in rough water. Several recommendations for reducing the height and volume of spray are provided. Any change in the hull form that softens the impact between the hull and waves seems to reduce the spray.
