Abstract:

Hydrodynamic coefficients capable of predicting the hydrodynamic forces and moments developed at high turning yaw rates were estimated using static coefficients obtained from test data and correlated to fit a hydrodynamic model incorporating potential flow coefficients, cross flow drag, and lift on the afterbody due to the presence of a wake. The local variation of the normal velocity component on a turning vehicle was then used to obtain dynamic coefficients. Author
