Abstract:

A potential flow problem, dealing with twin horizontal cylinders of arbitrary cross sectional forms vertically oscillating in a free surface is investigated. An associated experiment is carried out for four different sets of twin cylinders. The results from the theory and the experiment are compared and are found in good agreement. Author
