METODY FEORII RAZMERNOSTEY I PODOBIYA V ZADACHAKH GIDROMEKHANIKI SUDOV

The basic concepts of the theory of dimensional analysis and similarity are presented, on the basis of which a number of problems related to the hydromechanics of ships are solved; a group of problems with respect to water-displacing ships are analyzed. The major part of the book is dedicated to the problems that arise in connection with the development of high-speed craft. To these belong: steady and non-steady planing, various aspects of cavitational phenomena, motion of hydrofoil and air-cushion craft, deformations of the free surface and spray formation. (Author)
