Researchers develop new way to estimate wave resistance

Sea waves can impede the speed and performance, as well as increase the fuel consumption of ships travelling on the ocean. Measuring this impact has been difficult.

Now, researchers from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore) and National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) have developed a new method that can estimate this wave effect more accurately and easily, so that ship operators can account for it when planning shipping routes.
