The long-term goal of this research is to contribute to efficient design and operation of mini Autonomous Underwater Vehicles mini-AUVs in wave-energetic shallow and very-shallow waters based on rigorous dynamic and hydrodynamic analyses and modeling of underwater vehicles. The objective of the research is to carry out nonlinear dynamics and hydrodynamics analyses of small and modular mini-AUVs and determine the vehicle-stability, -maneuverability and motion response for a range of missions, vehicle-configurations and sea states, and thereby contribute to improving the efficacy and reliability of modular AUVs.
