From the theory of wave resistance various deductions can be made on the resistance of bodies of revolution immersed at finite depth especially, favorable optimum forms can be developed for given Froude numbers. By testing three models it is shown that theoretical results agree well, qualitatively and even quantitatively with the experimental results, if a phase displacement is ignored. The theory can be used up to minimum immersions of f 2b for a length diameter ratio L B a b 8 for a first orientation even f b can be admitted as long as full and short bodies are excluded.
