Boundary Integral Eqution Formulation for Free Surface Flow Problems in Two and Three Dimensions
To compute the transient solution of free surface flow problems in two and three dimensions boundary integral equation formulations are considered. Consistent lower and higher order approximations based on small curvature expansions are compared and applied to a time-dependent, linear surface wave problem.
