In this paper the resistance of a ship in a uniform stream of a viscous fluid is obtained theoretically to Oseen's approximateion. It is shown that the total resistance is expressed as the sum of two components, namely the wave making resistance and the viscous resistance. The former is determined by the sources and the Oseenlets distributed over the hull surface, while the latter is proportional to the total strength of the Oseenlets. The effect of the Oseenlets on the waves and the pressure turns out to be the same as that of the sources. The authors tried to apply these results to the actual ship resistance problem, and found that there exists a new component of the wave making resistance which is proportional to the skin friction coefficient C sub F.
