Abstract

This report describes the research that started with the research of Floris Buwalda
and continued with the work of Michaël Mersie. We will mostly work with Numerical
Mathematics to find a function that expresses the power that needs to be delivered
in terms of the ship’s desired speed in relation to the water. In order to keep up
with the digital age where contracts and transactions are calculated to fractions of
cents, it is essential that this function is as accurate as possible.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank Hans Huisman and MARIN for
their time and for contributing necessary data to this research.
