Motion of a cylinder under the surface of a heavy fluid

Sretensky, L. N.

General equations are derived for the approximate solution of the flow of a heavy infinite depth about a submerged circular cylinder where the center of the cylinder is submerged 1.5 diameter or greater. Then by replacing the cylinder by a dipole of a certain strength an equation is derived for the wave resistance of a circular cylinder moving in a fluid of finite depth.
