Part of the Fluid Mechanics and Its Applications book series (FMIA, volume 88)

For calculation of added masses of various elongated bodies the planar sections technique (see Chap. 3) is widely applied. Application of this method requires a knowledge of the added masses of corresponding cross sections in a planar flow. Theory of functions of a complex variable allows us to describe explicitly the planar flow around most planar contours that correspond to real ship structures. In this chapter we discuss added masses of various planar contours moving in an infinite two-dimensional fluid. We give the main formulas for computation of added masses using techniques due to Sedov [Sedov, L.I.: Planar Problems of Hydrodynamics and Aerodynamics. Nauka, Moscow (1966), in Russian].
