Application of slender body theory in ship hydrodynamics at high-Froude number
Garrison, Clarence Jimmy
MetadataShow full item record
The slender body theory utilizing the method of inner and outer expansions is applied to evaluate the yawing force and moment on a slender ship hull at high-Froude number. The theory is developed for hulls of arbitrary cross-section, and a Greens' function method is outlined for solving the inner problem for hulls of arbitary section. The theory is applied to a slender cylindrical hull, and the potential is represented in the inner region by a multipole expansion. Closed form results are obtained for the yawing force and moment for the cylindrical hull. (Author)
