EVALUATION OF MAPPING PROCEDURES FOR THE STATIONARY SHIP WAVE PROBLEM

The effects of wave patterns on ship's hull were investigated for the purpose of rationalizing the mapping procedures in prediction for wave resistance. Numerical computations of wave patterns for mathematical hull forms are presented and compared with experimental data of Inui, Kajitani and Adachi. It is apparent that the modifications of thin-ship theory calculations due to such mappings do not significantly affect discrepancies between theory and experiment. In the region around the ship, due to a certain folding, the flow is in general not determined uniquely. A new derivation of second-order wave resistance theory is presented. The ocurrence of a line integral component to second-order resistance is demonstrated.
