Bow Flows with Surface Tension

  title={Bow Flows with Surface Tension},
  author={C. David Andersson and J.-M. vanden-Broeck},
Two-dimensional free surface flow past a semi-infinite plate is considered. Surface tension is included in the free surface condition, and the effect of gravity is neglected. The configuration models a bow flow, i.e. the flow occurring at the front of an object moving at a constant velocity at the surface of a fluid. It is shown analytically and numerically that flows with waves do not meet the plate tangentially: there is an angle $\delta \neq $ 0 between the plane of the plate and the free… CONTINUE READING
