THE EFFECT OF A SURFACE LAYER OF VISCOUS FLUID ON THE WAVE RESISTANCE OF A THIN SHIP

A modification to the gravity-wave free-surface condition is suggested, to account for dissipative properties of thin surface layers of material such as broken-up ice, slush, or oil spills. A corresponding correction to Michell's wave-resistance integral is established, and computations are carried out for a parabolic strut.
