    Application of Boundary Element Method to Modelling of Added Mass and Its Effect on Hydrodynamic Forces

    Paola Gardano1, Peter Dabnichki1,2

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.15, No.2, pp. 87-98, 2006, DOI:10.3970/cmes.2006.015.087

    Abstract The work presents a numerical simulation of hydrodynamic forces generated in front crawl swimming. The three dimensional Laplace's equation is used for the analysis of the flow around a moving body in an infinite domain and considers the effect of the added mass and the acceleration on the hydrodynamic forces (Drag and Lift) generated by the interaction between the flow and the body at different geometric configurations of the arm -- variable elbow angle. Boundary Element Method (BEM) was used to obtain the solution of the three dimensional equation numerically. The aim of the work was two-fold:
