Abstract | The research examines an influence of a platform shape on free surface waves generated behind a semi-infinite two-dimensional platform moving with a constant speed on a water surface of a finite depth h. The fluid is assumed to be inviscid, incompressible and irrotational; the surface tension effect is neglected. The aim of the research is to find analytically and numerically such platform shape which |
