Abstract:

The report is a survey of the water entry problem and its various mathematical formulations. Included are discussions on the incompressible case, the compressible case, the linearized incompressible, the linearized compressible, reflected linearized incompressible, Lagrangian, two-dimensional and axially-symmetric cases. Also discussed are the source and dipole formulations, calculation of added masses, similar solutions, problems related to water entry, and a note of caution concerning the conservation of mass in an infinite region. Finally, a fairly extensive bibliography is given primarily covering theoretical work on the water entry and related problems. Author
