C12Carbon is on a distinguished road
Hi! I've new in this forum and I really hope you can help me about a problem! Well, I try to calculate the wave resistance throught sperimental method named "transverse wave cut" done by Eggers and Sharma (you can find some info at "").
My problem is the application of the expression, because I don't understand what I have to put into it!!! I tried to do the dimostration and its perfect, but I don't understand how I can use it. What do I replace to the F(u), G(u), u, s? The only things that I have are the waves' elevation got from a simulation with OpenFoam!
I thank anyone answer me
