English: Boat models by William Froude. The hulls of Swan (above) and Raven (below) on display in the Science museum, London. A sequence of 3, 6 and (shown in the picture) 12 foot scale models constructed by Froude and used in towing trials to establish resistance and scaling laws. Raven's sharp prow followed the "waveline" theory of John Scott Russell, but Swan's blunter profile proved to offer lower resistance.
