SHIP WAVE RESISTANCE - A SURVEY
Studies of ship resistance have generated concepts and methods of importance for all of fluid mechanics; for example: the understanding of the origin of fluid resistance in its various components; model testing as a science; similitude laws in testing and analysis; group velocity in dispersive systems; asymptotic integration; and thin body theory. Here, developments including the earliest are surveyed and placed in some historical perspective. The development and current status of theory are surveyed critically, concluding with: Slow Ship Theory, and Numerical Hydrodynamics.
