Abstract:

To develop formulas to evaluate the hydrodynamic forces acting on submerged solid bodies using only the far field behavior of the flow past the body. These formulas will eliminate the need to resolve the local behavior of the flow in the vicinity of the bodies. Once these formulas are developed, the interactions between submerged solid bodies both with and without a free surface may be analyzed without the need to resolve the local fluid velocity.
