Abstract

A submerged sphere advancing in a regular finite depth water wave at constant forward speed is analysed by linearized velocity potential. The solution is obtained by the multipole expansion extended from that developed for zero speed. Numerical results are obtained for wave-making resistance and lift, added masses, damping coefficients and exciting forces. Far field equations are also derived for calculating damping coefficients and exciting forces. They are used to check the results obtained from integrating pressure over the body surface. Excellent agreement is found.
