NONLINEAR HYDRODYNAMIC THEORY FOR FINITE-SPAN PLANING SURFACES

The flow caused by a high-aspect-ratio planing surface gliding on an infinitely deep, incompressible, inviscid, and gravity-free fluid is determined by the method of matched asymptotic expansions. A numerical solution for a planing plate of arbitrary angle of attack is presented. A downwash correction is also included. It is shown mathematically that the present theory can be applied to V-shape or general-shape planing surfaces with curvature in the spanwise direction.
