Water Entry of Thin Hydrofoils

  • A. G. Terentiev


First order methods conformably to entry of thin foils in incompressible fluids are considered. Two of them have been based on complex variables and the speed function as well as the partial time-derivative are obtained, another two methods are based on the time depended Green function and Fourier transformation, respectively. For examples, an entry of inclined wedges with strait sides into weightless and also into gravity medium are presented.
