Added Masses of Bodies Moving Close to a Free Surface

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

Description of motion of a body near a free surface of a fluid is significantly different from description of body motion in an infinite fluid. The difference is due to the presence of a boundary condition (constancy of pressure) on the free surface. Below we consider typical ways of dealing with this boundary condition for various cases.
