 Abstract

The classical problems of surface water waves produced by small oscillations of a thin vertical plate partially immersed as well as submerged in deep water are reinvestigated here. Each problem is reduced to an integral equation involving horizontal component of velocity across the vertical line outside the plate. The integral equations are solved numerically using Galerkin approximation in terms of simple polynomials multiplied by an appropriate weight function whose form is dictated by the behaviour of the fluid velocity near the edge(s) of the plate. Fairly accurate numerical estimates for the amplitude of the radiated wave at infinity due to rolling and also for swaying of the pate in each case are obtained and these are depicted graphically against the wave number for various cases.
