The interaction process can be clearly seen in the case of the oblique head wave condition at [chi] = 120[degrees] (where [chi] is the angle of the incident wave to the ship's advancing direction).
For the case of an oblique head incident wave at [zeta] = 120[degrees], the contour maps at 1/16 [T.
The regular incident wave was introduced from five directions: head wave ([chi] = 180[degrees]), oblique head wave ([chi] = 150[degrees]), beam wave ([chi] = 90[degrees]), oblique follow wave ([chi] = 30[degrees]), and follow wave ([chi] = 0[degrees]).
