Abstract : By means of rheo-electric analogy a method has been developed for determining the hydrodynamic characteristics of an infinite span hydrofoil submerged in a heavy fluid near the free surface. The first part of the work has been limited to study of a flat plate with incidence, but it is shown that the method may be applied to any form of meanline. (Author)
