ANALYSES ON WAVES AND THE WAVE RESISTANCE DUE TO TRANSOM STERN SHIPS

Waves and the wave resistance due to a ship with transom stern are analyzed starting with an exact formulation of the general ship wave problem. Greens theorem is utilized together with the well known Greens function which satisfies the linear free surface boundary condition on the free surface. Then a linearization is attempted for two types of ships; thin ships and flat ships. A transom stern ship is represented by the combination of these two types of ships. For the analysis of transom stern ships, it is required to take at least the second order terms in the formal development. It is found that the immersed transom stern acts to cancel stern waves. Using a limited form of Michells wave resistance formula, the wave resistance of the transom stern ship is analyzed. ( Author )
