Abstract

This paper deals with the hydrodynamic sideforce production of a wind-assisted ship. The subject is introduced, both in physical terms, and with an overview of current and recent work. The importance of the hydrodynamic sideforce is established, before classical models are reviewed. Finally, the complications arising from diverse appendage topologies are discussed, and a theory for zero-aspect ratio lifting surfaces is discussed. The paper concludes with a short summary of ongoing work.
