Interacting boundary for the flow around asymmetric hulls

In a recent paper (Graham, Clanet et al.) the effect of the orientation of an asymmetric hull onto the wave drag was analyzed experimentally and by CFD. We propose to compute the pressure field around the hull considering the interaction of the boundary layer and the external potential flow (following the so-called interactive boundary layer theory) to predict the hull effect on the wave drag without CFD.
