Abstract

The problem of small heave and pitch motions of a slender ship in shallow water including the effect of forward speed is analysed using the method of matched asymptotic expansions. Formulae valid to first order in slenderness are given for the added-mass and damping coefficients in terms of the frequency and subcritical Froude number.
