SHIP MOTIONS IN SHALLOW WATER

The problem discussed concerns small motions of a ship, in all six degrees of freedom, but at zero speed of advance, due to an incident wave system in shallow water of depth comparable with the ships draft. The problem is completely formulated for an arbitrary ship, and is partially solved for the case when the ship is slender and the wavelength much greater than the water depth. Sample numerical computations of heave, pitch, and sway, added mass and damping coefficients and the sway exciting force are presented.
