Abstract : Through the calculations presented in this paper, the authors concluded: (1) The modified Rankine source method, where the hull surface condition is approximated by the double hull condition, yields satisfactory results within a reasonable computing time. (2) Effects of sinkage on the wave making resistance is appreciable. The iterative computation depicts them. An alternative method to calculate the resistance is proposed. Though the results are still not satisfactory, its numerical advantage is immeasurable.
