An Efficient Numerical Method for 3D Viscous Ship Hydrodynamics with Free-Surface Gravity Waves
A new numerical method for water flows with free-surface gravity waves is investigated. The method is first analyzed with respect to the existence of steady free-surface waves, and the dispersion properties of these waves. Next, the method is used to compute the free water surface generated by a standard ship hull.
