Abstract:

Three wake survey experiments were conducted on Model 5265-1B representing the DD 963 Class Destroyer to determine the effect of speed. Longitudinal, tangential and radial velocity components for experiments at speeds corresponding to 20 knots, 28 knots and maximum speed are presented. Comparison is made with previous wake surveys demonstrating the repeatability of these experiments. A Harmonic Analyses of the circumferential distribution of the velocity component ratios were performed and are reported herein. Author
