LOW-ASPECT-RATIO FLAT-SHIP THEORY

An integral equation which determines the pressure distribution generating flow past a slender ship of vanishing draft is studied further. New results obtained include predictions of singular centerplane effects of gravity for pointed bodies, a similarity solution for ships with cusped parabolic waterplanes, and some preliminary numerical solutions of the integral equation in the general case.
