A CONSISTENT THEORY FOR OSCILLATING SLENDER SHIPS AT ARBITRARY FORWARD SPEED

A consistent linear theory is presented for the radiation problem of heave and pitch modes of a slender ship advancing at forward speed. The theory has no restrictions on the order of forward speed and oscillation frequency. The inner velocity potential includes a particular solution which is the same as that of the high-speed strip theory, plus a homogeneous component which is constructed by the superposition of the real-flow potential and the reverse-flow reverse- time potential. The unknown coefficient of the homogeneous component is determined from the matching with the outer solution, which makes the present theory essentially different from Yeing & Kim's developed with the same objective as this paper.
