Abstract:

National Center for Computational Engineering SimCenter, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, focused on the development of a computational procedure to evaluate various drag reduction strategies for hydrodynamically bluff-body vehicles. In particular, towards hydrodynamic drag reduction, different bow designs were investigated to replace the existing extendable bow vane of the current EFV configuration designated as the Baseline ACV configuration in this report.
