Abstract

To gain a deeper understanding of the complex behavior of flows over ship forms it is necessary to examine in detail the separate effects of pressure gradient, streamline divergence, and longitudinal and lateral curvature. With this in mind the longitudinal pressure gradients that occur along a Lucy Ashton mirror image model and its equivalent perimeter body of revolution were reproduced on a two-dimensional wing-like model. Although some longitudinal curvature effects were still present, divergence and lateral curvature were eliminated. Tentatively it is suggested that longitudinal pressure gradient effects are insufficient to explain the behavior of the local skin friction distribution.
