Abstract
The memorandum is the second of three which describe a series of computer programs for the calculation of the growth of a boundary layer on a ship hull. The memorandum describes the calculation of the potential flow around the numerically approximated hulls. The potential flow is calculated using a first-order panel method which yields the cartesian components of the flow vector at a number of control points on the hull. These discrete cartesian flow vectors are converted to contravariant velocity components and splined to yield a continuous representation of the potential flow over the hull. Zero Froude number is assumed. User guides are given for programs implementing the panel method and for a program which splines the calculated velocities.
