Abstract:

The UNCLE.6DOF submarine maneuvering code, developed by Mississippi State University and The Pennsylvania State University, has been transferred to Carderock Division, Naval Surface Warfare Center and installed at the Navy HydrodynamicHydroacoustic Technology Center. The code has been exercised on various test cases and results have been compared with measured data. Steady and unsteady, straight ahead and turning trajectories of appended and unappended bodies have been considered. The power and generality of the software are demonstrated and recommendations for further development are discussed.
