dc.description.abstractNonlinear free-surface flows generated by the motion of a surface-piercing body in an ideal fluid are studied. A numerical scheme employing a mixed Eulerian-Lagrangian approach and involving time stepping is used to simulate the flow. At each time step, the boundary value problem is solved using the Complex Boundary Element Method. The numerical performance of the method is studied by considering cases where the exact solution is known. Computational results for the impulsive wavemaker problem and the wedge entry problem for wedges of half-angles up to 15 degrees are presented. The obtained results are found to be in good agreement with existing analytical and numerical solutions.en
