Panel Methods for Free Surface Flows
Two boundary-element methods are presented for the solution of potential flows arising from the interaction of floating bodies with the free surface. The first problem studies the radiation and diffraction of monochromatic surface waves by stationary three-dimensional marine structures and the second models the generation and propagation of steady surface waves by a ship advancing with forward speed.
