The added mass coefficients for two and three-dimensional submerged bodies were calculated using a low-order panel code. The source and dipole strengths, and the panel surface area for each panel, were used to compute the integrals needed for added mass in all six degrees of motions. Several applications of this method were used in comparing the results with the theoretical, when available, experimental or other numerical results. The method was found to be successful in predicting the added mass coefficients using relatively low numbers of panels.
