HYDRODYNAMIC FORCES ON SHIPS IN DREDGED CHANNELS

The problem to be treated here is that of steady longitudinal motion of a ship in a dredged channel, with specific attention to the predicton of sinkage and trim, and wave resistance. The dredged channel is idealized to be of rectangular cross section, and linearized shallow- water solutions are developed for the dredged or deep section, and for the two shallow regions alongside the channel. The ship is assumed slender, moving along the centerline of the channel, and is replaced by an equivalent source distribution, as in the earlier theories of Tuck for shallow water of constant depth.
