The study shows the changes in heave and pitch motions when a ship hull is damaged with varying compartment permeability values using wave statistics. It is an experimental investigation into obtaining motion measurements of an intact and damaged frigate model in waves. Experiments were carried out using the Southampton Solent University towing tank facility and a 1/43.62 scale segmented frigate model of the Leander Class Frigates Hull. During the experiment wave length/wave height was kept constant whilst wave frequencies were varied from 3.173 to 6.276 rad/s. The tests were carried out with the model stationary and in motion with a forward speed of 1.4ms-1. Results of the tests indicated that compartment permeability has a non-linear effect on heave and pitch motions of a damaged ship.
