Abstract:

The report presents the results of a flutter analysis for the submarine USS ALBACORE AGSS 569. The results were obtained both by performing a simple control-surface computation using analytical expressions derived in the report and by computing the rudder-diving plane and stabilizer-hull vibrations including flutter on an analog computer. The analogs are based upon previously derived theories and methods for representing the vibrating system and for evaluating various control surface-hull parameters. The analytical and analog results are in excellent agreement and indicate that controlsurface flutter of ALBACORE will occur at about 90 knots. Author
