One problem with this design has been that a substantial seaway can make it difficult to maintain directional stability, so a planing boat may need to operate more slowly in rough conditions.
This research will entail numerical simulation and comparison of computational results to measurement from full-scale sea trials to improve the understanding of the fluid dynamics of planing boats with an ultra-deep vee hull, which provides strong riding and handling capabilities in a sea-way.
