Abstract:

This report provides the instructions for using a suite of computer codes to calculate approximately the three-dimensional boundary layer on ship hulls. There are two sets of codes for computing boundary layers. One is for computing a first-order approximation and is based on a slender-body potential and the small crossflow assumption. The second set of codes uses a general three-dimensional calculation method for the potential flow and solves the three-dimensional momentum integral boundary-layer equations without making restrictive assumptions on the magnitude of the crossflow. An example problem is presented for both methods. Author
