AbstractIn the present study a nonlinear boundary value problem for ship waves is obtained by transforming, through a Taylor's series expansion, the free surface condition of the exact ship wave problem from being satisfied on the actual free surface to being satisfied on the undisturbed fluid free surface. An iterative method based on the direct boundary integral theory and linear element techniques is developed to solve the transformed nonlinear boundary value problem.
