SWAY ADDED-MASS COEFFICIENTS FOR RECTANGULAR PROFILES IN SHALLOW WATER

This paper presents analytic and numerical results for the added-mass coefficients of two-dimensional rectangular cylinders, accelerating laterally in shallow water. The free surface is assumed rigid, corresponding to low-frequency oscillations in waves or low Froude number maneuvers in calm water. The effects of finite water depth are most significant for rectangles of large beam-draft ratio.
