POLYNOMIAL FAMILIES FOR FLAT-FACED UNDERWATER BODIES AND WALL-SIDED SHIP SECTIONS

Polynomial families that contain a cube-root term are developed to satisfy requirements of infinite slope and zero curvature. Adjustable parameters are used to provide a wide range of curves without inflection points. Applications are to flat-faced underwater bodies and wall-sided ship sections. (Author)
