Several RoRoShips which were known to be very fuel efficient were analyzed according to the proposed EEDIconcept. It was found that this EEDI actually results in a severe speed limit for those ships. It was further found that this type of ship can fulfil the EEDI only at physically impossible negative wave resistances for their desired design speed. This is due to the fact that the present EEDI violates commonly accepted physical principles of the powering of ships. It is strongly recommended… CONTINUE READING
