Flow patterns about the forward hull and sonar domes were observed on a model of the DDG-2 through DDG-19 in the Circulating Water Channel. The speed was varied to simulate full-scale speeds from 18 knots 9.26 ms through 30 knots 15.43 ms, with the yaw angle being set at zero degrees and or - three degrees. Side and bottom views of the flow patterns were recorded on photographs, which are included in the report. The flow patterns are satisfactory for all the conditions investigated. Author
