I have re-read the earlier posts on this topic. It seems there was a problem with the mesh. And most of those really interested to do this simulation were staff of SimScale. Also, I noticed that there were requests for technical information e.g. Savitsky paper, excel spreadsheet. And since many months ago interests seems to have waned.
Just so that you are aware, I have Savitsky’s 1964 paper, his 1976 paper for rough and smooth conditions, his 1979 paper (re-evaluation) and others as well. And I also have the excel spreadsheet. I will forward the links via our SimScale technical account manager Akrem. If you are interested, please get what you need from him.
Besides this, I am the holder of the patent for a watercraft which uses a novel means of planing. So, if your interest is the old planing regime, all you need to get you up to speed…you will be able to get from Akrem. Also, as we have signed a mutual non-disclosure with SimScale, if you are interested in the novel means of obtaining hydrodynamic lift, please let Akrem know also ;).
