WAVE RESISTANCE OF A SHIP OF FINITE BEAM PREDICTED BY THE LOW SPEED THEORY

A theory for the prediction of wave resistance at low Froude numbers is presented. It takes account of the non-linear effect of the free surface condition by means of the distribution of sources over the undisturbed free surface. As a numerical example, the wave resistance of Wigley model is calculated, and the result is compared with experimental values. It is concluded that the computation based on the double model surface sources shows some discrepancies with the measured values but the employment of the solution of Neumann-Kelvin problem seems to improve the agreement to a considerable extent.
