CALCULATION OF THE POTENTIAL FLOW AROUND A SHIP BODY TRAVELLING OBLIQUELY IN DEEP AND SHALLOW WATER

A Rankine panel method for calculating lifting potential flow about three-dimensional surface-piercing bodies in deep and/or shallow water is developed and applied to ships in steady motion at small drift angles. The proposed method was applied to three ship hulls, a Wigley model, a Series 60 with CB=0.60 and a Marine type ship. Numerical results are presented and compared with other numerical and experimental results where available, which have shown the usefulness of the proposed method in calculating the flow and the hydrodynamic forces acting on practical ship forms.
