Model tests were made to determine the forces and moments at the aft hatch of a modern submarine due to the attachment of a rescue submarine. The model of the rescue submarine has vertical and horizontal thruster ducts fore and aft, and an all-movable ring tail. These devices are to be used to control the rescue submarine, both at hovering speeds and underway. It was found that the loads on the hatch of the prototype submarine are quite large. These loads can be reduced by proper coordination of the all-movable ring tail with the controls of the mother submarine. Author
