PREDICTION OF DRAG AND ADDED MASS ON OSCILLATING BODIES

A simple new theory is presented for predicting hydrodynamic forces acting on arbitrarily oscillating bodies. It is based on the assumption that the Morison formula is applicable with constant drag and mass coefficients if wake velocities produced by the body motions in all past history are corrected for properly.
