Abstract : The Fifteenth Symposium on Naval Hydrodynamics was held in Hamburg, Federal Republic of Germany, on September 2-7, 1984, under the joint sponsorship of the Office of Naval Research, the National Research Council, and the Hamburgische Schiffbau-Versuchsanstalt (HSVA) with the support of Institut fur Schiffbau, the Deutsche Forachungagemeinechaft, and the Preie und Hansestadt Hamburg. The symposium was the culmination of several years of intense and careful preparation, and its success is a result of the dedication of many people involved in that work. The traditional policy of featuring current research results in important problem areas in ship hydrodynamics was reflected in the selection of the major themes of the symposium. The four major themes were Seakeeping Problems; Hull-Propeller Interactions; Non- linear Free-Surface Problems; and Frontier Problems in Hydrodynamics. Two sessions were allocated for each theme, except for the last theme, which had only one session. Thirty- three papers of excellent technical quality were presented. Participants came from as many as twenty-four countries.
