Solutions are obtained for the velocity components generated by a singularity moving horizontally in a fluid of constant Brunt-Väisälä frequency. A radiation condition is enforced using an artificial damping mechanism. Two solutions are combined to produce a Rankine ovoid and a continuous line distribution is used to model a prolate spheroid. The distribution velocity field generated by the body displays the characteristics associated with the propagation of internal waves. The disturbance velocities calculated on the fluid’s surface are compared with those obtained from a three layer model. The patterns produced display significant differences.
