Abstract:

The reporting investigates second order terms of the expansion in the beamlength ratio of the potential of flow past a thin ship. The ship is in a steady translational motion, in water of infinite depth and infinite lateral extent, within its central plane of symmetry. Heave and trim are not taken into account.
