A NOTE ON THE RESISTANCE OF BODIES OF REVOLUTION AND SHIP FORMS

A simple so-called 'equivalent' body of revolution is proposed for reflex ship forms in an attempt to simplify calculation of the boundary layer over a ship's hull when there is no wavemaking. However, exhaustive testing of one body of revolution did not produce a favorable comparison with results for the corresponding reflex model. Gadd's recently proposed theory was used to calculate the boundary-layer development over the body of revolution. Reasonable agreement was obtained between the calculated and experimental results.
