Measured elevations in the wave train of a Rankine ovoid are compared with computed elevations for an ideal source and sink. The measured elevations are in phase with the computed elevations but have smaller amplitudes. The discrepancy in amplitude is attributed to turbulent boundary layer and wake in the flow around the real ovoid.
