Abstract:

The David Taylor Mo ll Basin conducted towing tests to determine the hydrodynamic forces, bending moments, and configurations of three sub marine whip antennas so that a theoretical meth od of predicting antenna characteristics could be validated. The results of the study indicate that the antenna with the smallest diameter ex hibits the smallest forces and moments, as-xx pected. A comparison of the experimental data with the theory indicates that the theoretical method can be used p predict configurations of whip antennas with a reasonable degree of ac curacy, but further refinements are necessary to improve predictions of drag and bending moment.
