Abstract : Experimental measurements of the flow fields from an axi-symmetrical body with and without appendages were made in the Carderock Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center (CDNSWC) and Tracor Hydronautics Ship Model Basin (HSMB). These experimental data are intended to serve as the data base for the Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) validations and other submarine related flow field analyses and was identified as the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) SUBOFF project. Previous reports have documented various aspects of this SUBOFF test program. This report summarizes all collected data set in tabulated formats and serves as the final database for future submarine flow research.
