The work reported in this thesis was commenced in 1946 with a general survey of the literature and existing methods. Equipment was built up in order to test some original ideas for seismic detectors. In August 1947 we were invited by the British Shipbuilding Research Association to assist in a research programme to investigate the effects of entrained water on vibrating ships and ship models. This assistance was to take the form of advice about instrumentation and electronic measurement techniques. A range of special instruments was designed and constructed for the programme and developments have continued over a period of nine years. In the result we now have a set of instruments for producing vibration at a known and accurately controlled frequency and for measuring the vibration both in magnitude and phase. As commercial equipment was generally unsuitable for the purpose, this instrumentation has given substantial aid to the progress of the programme.
