Abstract:

Potential flow models are developed for a submerged body of revolution with fin and rudder appendages. Forces and moments on the lifting surfaces and hull have been predicted at a steady angle of attack. The procedure is extended to the time dependent angle of attack case. Experimental, analytical and numerical approaches are described.
