Abstract:

Experimental measurements of the flow field of an axisymmetric body, bridge fairwater, four identical symmetric stern appendages, and two ring wings with ring wing support struts will be made in the David Taylor Research Center DTRC Anechoic Flow Facility AFF and deep-water towing basins TMB and Tracor Hydronautics Ship Model Basin HSMB. The experimental data will be used to assess the current Computational Fluid Dynamics capability for the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency DARPA SUBOFF Project. Experimental facilities and techniques are presented, and the contents of the experiments are outlined. This information together with the geometric characteristics of DARPA SUBOFF models is intended for use by both the model test engineers and the CFD engineers.
