Waveless freesurface pressure distributions
Abstract
Linear and nonlinear studies are made of twodimensional freesurface flows under gravity, in which a disturbance is caused to an otherwiseuniform stream by a distribution of pressure over the free surface. In general, such a disturbance creates a system of trailing waves. However, there are special disturbances that do not, and some categories of such disturbances are discussed here. This work has potential applications to design of splashless ship bows.
