by S.F. Borg,

Serial Information: Journal of the Engineering Mechanics Division, 1957, Vol. 83, Issue 2, Pg. 1-28

Document Type: Journal Paper


Study is based upon new formulation of basic equations of hydrodynamics especially applicable to wedge water entry problem; development is given first for compressible case; this is then specialized to incompressible (water) case and study of resulting equations leads to various relations and properties governing general straight sided wedge water entry phenomenon.
