Calculation of linear ship waves

David C Scullen

Abstract


The Sea Wave Pattern Evaluation suite of programs was originally developed to calculate far field wave elevations for thin ships but grew to encompass a raft of other tasks including calculating the complete wave field with velocity components for multihull and submerged vessels, incorporating sinkage and trim, viscous damping and finite depth effects, and measuring wave resistance and viscous resistance. It also led to investigations into waves produced by pressure distributions and planing surfaces. This article traces Sea Wave Pattern Evaluation's development, explains the mechanics of its key components, and refers to some of the results that have been produced by it.
