Linear Potential Theory

Course subject(s) 3. Linear Potential Theory

This lecture mainly explains about how to calculate the hydrodynamic coefficients. The teacher will first explain the “left hand side” of the motion equation, which describes the reaction forces on a ship from the fluid that is surrounding it. The second part of this lecture will explain more on how to determine the coefficients from the radiation potentials.
