Steady flow around a floating body: The rotationally symmetric case

Josef Bemelmans, Mads Kyed

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

We investigate the steady motion of a viscous incompressible fluid around a floating body which is rotating with a constant angular velocity. The fluid flow is described by a free boundary problem for the Navier-Stokes equations, where the free boundary consists of the capillary surface of the fluid and the wetted part of the floating body.
