AbstractIn the present work a vertically 2D numerical model is utilized to study the free surface wave kinematics in the absence and presence of a submarine. Description or derivation of formulae is provided that we have used to compute the internal wave amplitude along the interface of fluids of two different densities when free surface wave conditions are known. Finally another numerical model is utilized to compute the second order drift force on the underwater vehicles due to the presence of internal waves along an interfacial boundary.
