Panel Method panMARE

The panel code panMARE (panel Code for Maritime Applications and REsearch) is a command driven program aimed to simulate arbitrary potential flows in marine applications. The program is based on a three-dimensional first-order panel method where the geometry of the considered body is discretised into flat quadrilateral elements. On the discretised body adequate boundary conditions are applied and a linear system of equations is solved to obtain a local velocity and pressures distribution on the body.
