Program HOLTROP

(20-04-2000)
J.M.J. Journe

This still water resistance prediction method in this program has been described by:
J. Holtrop and G.G.J. Mennen,
"An Approximate Power Prediction Method",
International Shipbuilding Progress, Vol. 89, 1982.
J. Holtrop,
"A Statistical Reanalysis of Resistance and Propulsion Data",
International Shipbuilding Progress, Vol. 31, 1984.
To run the Fortran/77 program HOLTROP, the Personal Computer must contain a
CONFIG.SYS file with the following statements:
BUFFERS=nn
FILES=nn
DEVICE=C:\WINDOWS\COMMAND\ANSI.SYS

in which nn is generally 40 or more.


For running the program under Windows, this CONFIG.SYS file must be visible in
the Explorer.
If not so, set in the Explorer: | View | Folder Options | Tab View | Hidden Files | Show
all Files |.
After these modifications: Restart your computer !!!
