UNSTEADY AIR-CUSHION VEHICLE HYDRODYNAMICS USING FOURIER SERIES

Fourier series are used to compute the wave resistance, side force, yawing moment, total power, and wave elevations associated with air-cushion vehicles moving on arbitary trajectories over calm and disturbed seas. The use of a bounded rather than an infinite spatial domain replaces the inverse Fourier transform with a series summation. Results indicate that the use of Fourier series leads to an efficient computational scheme for the analysis of air-cushion vehicle hydrodynamics.
