Abstract:

Three methods that have been developed for computing added-mass coefficients of two-dimensional forms, oscillating horizontally or vertically at a free surface are compared by application to a set of four cargo-ship sections. Computer programs are listed for two of these methods. The method employing conformal mapping is recommended as the best of the three.
