This paper presents a series of methods for calculation of three-dimensional boundary layers applicable to the flow over ship hull surfaces. The formulation of the equations in general coordinate systems on curved surfaces implies the use of differential geometric relations. The question of geometry and general coordinate systems are reviewed. A short discussion of semi-empirical modeling in order to achieve closure of the equations is included considering the generalization to the three- dimensional case. The importance of integral methods and the definition of integral parameters for these methods is stressed. The velocity profiles generally assumed in order to obtain a relation between the integral parameters are presented. No numerical methods or schemes are discussed.
