A microcomputer-based computational method has been devised for numerically simulating viscous flow past an arbitrary ship hull. The method uses a thin-ship theory to compute hull-surface velocities and b a three-dimensional boundary-layer program which embodies the Wilcox-Rubesin two-equation turbulence model to compute boundary-layer development. The method makes provision for including displacement effects.
