Abstract

Tri-SWACH is a novel multihull ship design that is well suited to a wide range of industrial, commercial, and military applications, but which because of its novelty has few experimental studies on which to base further development work. Using a new form of particle swarm optimization that incorporates a strong element of stochastic search, Breeding PSO, it is shown it is possible to use multilayer nets to predict resistance functions for Tri-SWACH hullforms, including one function, the Residual Resistance Coefficient, which was found intractable with previously explored neural network training methods.
