## Abstract

A three-dimensional method for predicting the motions of a ship running in waves is presented. Basically the method developed here is based on the source distribution technique and the general formulations include the effect of steady flow and unsteady flow. Three algorithms are used for treating the corresponding Green functions and derivatives, i.e. (1) The Hess and Smith algorithm for the part of simple source l/r. (2) The complex plane contour integral of Shen and Farell algorithm for the Double integral of steady flow. (3) The series expansions of Telste and Noblesse algorithm for the Cauchy principal value integral of unsteady flow. The steady flow potential is especially considered in the calculations of diffraction and radiation problems, and effects on ship motions are discussed. The results indicate that the effect of steady flow is generally small, but still cannot be neglected in some cases especially for long waves. It is also interesting to find that the steady flow effect depends on the fore-aft configuration of the ship.
