The Actual Sea Model Basin was completed at August, 2010 at National Maritime Research Institute, Japan. The basin is equipped with wave generators surrounding the basin, towing carriage and wind blowers in which actual sea conditions are realized. Using the basin verification on the resistance test in waves was carried out. Comparison with the added resistance in waves is carried out between the other tanks in our institute using models of a container carrier and a bulk carrier. Through the evaluation of the decrease of ship speed, it is confirmed the deviation is smaller than that carried out the cooperative tank tests previously using the same ship form among the other tank institutes in Japan. Here the result of the verification is reported.
