Abstract:

This report documents the computer code WAVEAMP, a program to compute the Kelvin wave amplitudes using the Neumann-Kelvin approximation. To run WAVEAMP the source strength on the hull surface must first be determined using a Neumann-Kelvin code. Example output is presented for the Quapaw hull at three Froude numbers. The calculations include both near-field and far-field waves, and longitudinal. wave cuts.
