Abstract:

This report is a structural and hydrodynamic analysis of a cantilever beam commonly found on submarines. It is intended for use as a design guide to illustrate analytical approaches to problems often encountered in antenna design and evaluation. The two-section cantilever beam consists of a cylinder mounted on top of the faired section. The faired section is subjected to unsymmetrical bending due to varying angles of attack, while the cylindrical section experiences a vibrational load caused by vortex shedding plus a drag load.
