Capillary gravity waves: A “fixed-depth" analysis
Laboratoire de Physique de la Matière Condensée UMR CNRS 7125 and FR CNRS 2438 Collège de France, 75231 Paris Cedex 05, France

We study the onset of the wave resistance due to the generation of capillary gravity waves by a partially immersed moving object in the case where the object is held at a fixed immersion depth. We show that, in this case, the wave resistance varies continuously with the velocity, in qualitative accordance with recent experiments by Burghelea et al. (Phys. Rev. Lett., 86 (2001) 2557).
