HEADSEAS WAVE DIFFRACTION COMPUTER PROGRAM. USER MANUAL
The purpose of this computer program is to compute the dynamic pressure distribution and related quantities of interest due to the diffraction of sinusoidal head waves. The method of computation is based on slender-body theory. The theoretical analysis is based on the assumption that the ship is slender. In addition, it is assumed that the incident waves are of small amplitude and their wavelength is short relative to the ship length. In the next section we shall give a brief summary of the theoretical analysis in order to facilitate an understanding of the computer program. Details of the theoretical analysis may be found in Beck (1979). In the following sections, details of the numerical technique and the computer program will be discussed.
