Abstract
The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) is the charity that aims to save lives at sea. The RNLI D-class is a five metre inflatable lifeboat that is used near the shore in waves and surf. Anecdotal evidence indicates that the D-class has improved performance due to its unique, flexible, fabric structure, and this flexibility is highly likely to affect the vibrations generated by the D-class. The boat motion is experienced by the on-board crew, and the air and water borne noise are heard by the on-board crew and the wildlife. This thesis aims to measure these two types of vibration, predict the perception of these vibrations and measure the effects of hydro...
