WAVE RESISTANCE: THE LOW SPEED LIMIT

The problem of the flow around a slowly moving, submerged, two-dimensional body is formulated and partially solved. It is shown that the first approximation must include the flow around the body and its mirror image. The second approximation includes wave effects. The latter are characterized by a length scale which is very short compared with body dimensions and submergence.
