• To establish measurability of hull performance in full scale.
• To establish prediction methods for increase of resistance and fuel consumption due to hull roughness and fouling
• Establish a validated method for prediction of full scale frictional resistance based on model scale tests.


• Model scale measurements
• Full scale measurement and monitoring
• Scaling effects and development of scaling procedures
• Estimates for energy saving of surface treatments
