A slender body of revolution berthing to a wall is studied by extending the classical slender body theory. This topic is of practical importance for a ship berthing to a quay wall. The flow problem is solved analytically using the method of matched asymptotic expansions. The lateral force and yaw moment on the body are obtained in a closed form too. The translation and yawing of the body are modeled using the second Newton law and coupled with the flow induced. Numerical analyses are performed for the dynamic lateral translation and yawing of a slender spheroid, while its horizontal translation parallel to the wall is prescribed at zero speed, constant speed, and time varying speed, respectively. The analysis reveals the interesting dynamic features of the translation and yawing of the body in terms of the forward speed and starting angle of yaw of the body.
