CALCULATION OF THE STREAMLINES ABOUT A SHIP ASSUMING A LINEARIZED FREE-SURFACE BOUNDARY CONDITION

The problem of computing the inviscid-fluid flow about a ship hull is investigated. A boundary-value problem, including a linearized free-surface boundary conditions, is posed for the velocity potentials. Singularities distributed over the hull surface are used to determine this potential. Surface streamlines are computed by numerically integrating a set of differential equations along the hull surface. A sample calculation for a Series 60, block coefficient 0.60 hull at a Froude number of 0,259 is included.
