A fast method for optimizing the configuration of a di-hull system is to take advantage of the wave-cut signatures of each hull and evaluate the combined resistance of the hull system using analytical expressions that portray the interference effects of the hull-generated waves. This interference formula is available in Yeung et al. [1] and can be used in conjunction with the wave-cut signatures. The Longitudinal Wave-cut Method (LCM) is utilized to acquire the wave-making spectrum for each monohull. Then the di-hull interference wave resistance is deduced by substituting these experimentally-acquired information into analytical expressions for resistance computation. The pre-acquired wave-spectrum information can be stored and used for a combination of any component hulls, identical or not. This hybridization procedure of theory and experiments is tested and evaluated. Its merits and deficiencies are discussed.
