The central problem of strip theory is the calculation of potential flowaround 2D sections.One particularmethod of solutions to this problem is conformalmapping of the body section to the unit circle over which a solutionof potential flow is available. Here, a new multiparameter conformal mapping method is presented that can mapany arbitrary section onto a unit circle with good accuracy. The procedure for finding the corresponding mappingcoefficients is iterative. The suggested mapping technique is shown to be capable of appropriately mapping anychined, bulbous, and large and fine sections. Several examples of mapping symmetric and nonsymmetric sectionsare demonstrated. For symmetric and nonsymmetric sections, the results of the current method are comparedagainst other mapping techniques, and the currently produced geometries display good agreement with the actualgeometries.
