Abstract:

This report studies the structure of a ship surface wave wake far down stream in the vicinity of the axis. Of particular interest is the effects of finite ship width. The theoretical work shows that there are singularities in the flow field but they are not on the axis. It is argued that the singularity is not real but is rather due to an injudicious rise of the stationary phase method. Author
