A method is proposed for estimating the velocity distribution in ship wake and some results of numerical calculations are shown and compared with those of experiments. The velocity is estimated considering the potential and the viscous components separately, and it is concluded that the method can be used for estimating the velocity distribution in ship wake from the hull geometry and measured wave profiles, even in case of large Reynolds numbers.
