Abstract : This biennial symposium promotes the exchange of technical developments in naval research of common interest to all the countries of the world. Nearly 200 participants from some 20 countries attended the symposium, papers were presented in seven topical areas: ship motions, ship hydrodynamics, experimental techniques, free-surface aspects, wave/wake dynamics, propeller/hull/appendage interactions, and viscous effects. Examples of significant advances presented in the papers are the solution of nonlinear equations for ship motions and ship hydrodynamics, the small-scale dynamics of cavitation inception, development and implementation of multipoint, free-surface measurements, modeling of solitons in Kelvin wakes, reconnection phenomena for vortex interactions with the free surface, Navier-Stokes solutions for propellers, and the inclusion of the hull boundary layer in predictions of hull flows. This brief list illustrates the quality and timeliness of the symposium for naval hydrodynamics.
