The problem of a hydrofoil moving near an interface of two fluids of different densities is analyzed. An iteration scheme is proposed which imposes the boundary conditions on the body surface and on the interface alternately. The numerical solution is obtained by using the linearized theory and a Glauert-type expansion for the vortex distribution. Results are provided for various cases with different densities and different speeds.
