Abstract:

Results are presented of a theoretical study to determine the forces and moments acting on an oscillating, near-surface hydrofoil in twodimensional, linearized potential flow. The flow was assumed to be non-cavitating, but no limitations were placed on the values of Froude number or depth-to-chord ratio. Results are presented in graphical and tabular form, lift and moment being given as functions of reduced frequency with Froude number and depth-to-semichord ratio as parameters. Author
