Considering the streamline tube theory and the Bernoulli effect, we can estimate that the 3D spectrum of flow generated around and outside of a classical stern hull having practiced transversal corrugated stern sections can be substantially improved by an architectural optimization in the sense of axial velocities from a propulsion propeller immediate front plane uniformization--figure 2.
