Abstract : The Twentieth Symposium on Naval Hydrodynamics was held in Santa Barbara, California, from August 21.26, 1994. This international symposium was organized jointly by the Office of Naval Research (Mechanics and Energy Conversion S&T Division), the National Research Council (Naval Studies Board), and the University of California, Santa Barbara. In addition to promoting the exchange of naval technical research developments of common interest to all the countries of the world, this biennial symposium encourages both formal and informal discussion of the presented papers, and the occasion provides an opportunity for direct communication among international peers. More than 130 participants from 13 countries attended the symposium. The attendees represented a mix of experiences and expertise. Sixty-six papers were presented in twenty topical areas, including ships in a seaway; propeller cavitation performance; ship motions under way and wave resistance; oscillating propulsors; ship motion nonlinear; cavitation; propeller noise; ships in shallow water; cavitation inception and supercavitating flows; diffraction and nonlinear drift; wave breaking; near-surface turbulence; ship-generated vortices; hydrodynamic impact; bubble flows; waves; turbulent ship flows; ship viscous flows; forced wave motion; and computation of viscous propulsor flows.
