Abstract:

Stability and control coefficients, derived from model tests using the DTMB Planar-Motion-Mechanism System and supplemented by analytical estimates, are presented for use in detailed simulation studies of the motions of a preliminary design for the Deep Submergence Rescue Vessel DSRV in six degrees of freedom. Analyses are made to evaluate the inherent dynamic stability and control effectiveness characteristics of the vehicle for motions confined to either the vertical or horizontal plane. The results of a special investigation to determine effects of forward speed and broadside motion on the performance of the thrusters are also presented and discussed.
