AbstractIn applying slender-body theory and the method of matched asymptotic expansions to the diffraction problem, the treatment of the flow fields along the entrance the run of the hull has always been a problem. The limited available experimental data in the literature tend to be too ambiguous to help clear up the problem. We present some data obtained from recent experiments that are remarkably at odds with slender-body theory and the method of matched asymptotic expansions. The data indicate some of the propertiues of the wave-incuded pressure that must be appropriately accounted for in a wave diffraction theory of the solution is to be valid for all speeds.
