ADDED MASS AND DAMPING OF SUBMERGED BODIES OSCILLATING NEAR THE SURFACE

Oscillatory tests were performed on several geometric shapes in the vicinity of the free surface of an undisturbed fluid. The tests, together with an accompanying literature review, were conducted to determine the influence of geometry, depth, amplitude of motion, and frequency on the fluid added mass and damping coefficients. The results, which are in broad agreement with the theoretical calculations, are used to generate empirical expressions for a range of frequencies, depths, and geometries.
