WAVE RESISTANCE OF ASYMMETRIC PRESSURE DISTRIBUTIONS MOVING IN A CANAL

Expressions are derived for the wave resistance of two asymmetric pressure distributions moving with constant forward speed along the free surface of a canal of constant width and depth. Calculations are made for the case of a rectangular planform with an elliptic or triangular bow with constant pressure, as a function of speed, length to beam ratio, and the width and depth of the canal. The numerical schemes considered for the approximation of the wave resistance of the planform with the elliptic bow are also discussed in some detail.
