Abstract:

A prediction of the added mass and damping of a heaving, two-dimensional, captured air bubble, published by Ogilvie in 1969, is verified, within limits, by the experiment discussed in this paper. Only the depth of the lip, relative to the width of the bubble, appears to exert a strong influence on the results.
